Draw dampens Bayern’s Oktoberfest visit

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp With Bayern’s world-class goalkeeper Manuel Neuer out until January with a fractured foot, his replacement Sven Ulreich made a mistake when Arnold’s free-kick beat him on 56 minutes.“I made the wrong decision admitted Ulreich.“I wanted to steer the ball over the crossbar, it looked like the ball was going to come higher.“I’m sorry for the guys and the team.”In their first six league games, Bayern have now dropped five from a possible 18 points.That is unheard of for the defending champions at this stage of the season and Bayern could finish the weekend as low as fourth in the table, depending on other results.But Salihamidzic has vowed things will be different come Wednesday in Paris against PSG’s ‘MCN’ attack of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.“You don’t have to motivate anyone to play in the Champions League and we will be quite different there,” assured Bayern’s director.“We can’t make so many mistakes.”Hummels was also confident of Bayern turning things around.“Football is a day-to-day business and it’s going to be a very different game. If we play well, everything will be alright,” said the German international confidently. Bayern Munich players dining at the ‘Oktoberfest’ beer festival in MunichBerlin, Germany | AFP | Bayern Munich were in dampened spirits during their visit to the Munich ‘Oktoberfest’ beer festival on Saturday, after a shock Bundesliga home draw to mid-table Wolfsburg.Bayern threw away a two-goal lead on Friday at the Allianz Arena which cost them the chance to top the Bundesliga table.Robert Lewandowski’s penalty and an Arjen Robben first-half goal were cancelled out in the second-half by a Maximilian Arnold free-kick and Daniel Didavi’s late equaliser for Wolfsburg.The result in Munich means league leaders Borussia Dortmund can go three-points clear of Bayern if they win at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday evening.Their poor performance cast a shadow for Bayern’s stars, who were all dressed up in traditional Bavarian lederhosen, at Oktoberfest.“It was a shit day,” fumed sports director Hasan Salihamidzic about Friday’s draw.Mats Hummels admitted the visit to one of Oktoberfest’s beer tents “wasn’t going to be as boisterous as it could have been”.“We’re not playing the football we want to,” added the centre-back.Germany forward Thomas Mueller was also still sore about the dropped points.“We let it happen and threw the win away. We gave them the point wrapped up with a bow on top,” fumed Mueller.“That was a step backwards in terms of our intensity.”The performance dents confidence for Wednesday’s key Champions League match at Paris Saint-Germain, a fixture which could well decide Group B with Celtic and Anderlecht also in the pool.“We were slow, without intensity, not compact enough,” complained coach Carlo Ancelotti.“We’ll have to turn in a different display in Paris.”last_img

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — February 28, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180228_RyanMartinRain moves into southern Ohio today. The best action develops this afternoon over the southern third of the state, but we will see clouds and a few scattered showers all the way up to the I-70 corridor. Rain totals in the south can be .25”-.75” with 70% coverage from I-70 southward. Northern areas really do not see anything other than clouds, except for a few scattered showers near the lake shore in north central Ohio closer to this evening. Southwest winds through the day today will keep things mild for one more day.A strong low lifts out of central IL into northern Ohio tomorrow. Notice that this track of the low is farther south. That puts bigger rain potential into our next of the woods. We are raising rain potential tomorrow to .25”-1” with coverage at 80% of the state. The rains go through the entire day, and will look to change over to snow through the nighttime hours tonight. We can see a coating to 2 inches from US 30 northward, and in NE Ohio, where the lake enhancement is the greatest overnight tomorrow night, we cans see some snows over 3-4”. The European model is by far the heaviest on snow, and the GFS is downplaying the entire event. We think the answer lies somewhere in the middle. Strong winds will be the major problem, though. Winds should be 20-40 mph tomorrow night on the backside of the low. This will bring the cold air in fast (hence the changeover to snow) and create serious visibility issues along with low wind chills. Tomorrow night will not be a good night to be out.By midday Friday we are dry, but cool. We stay dry and chilly through Saturday and start to see some temperature moderation Sunday. Next Monday will bring moderating temps.Scattered showers look less impressive this morning for next Monday night into Tuesday. WE are dropping rain totals back to a few hundredths to .25” over 805 of the state. The best chances come right around Tuesday morning. But early afternoon, action is already off to the east.We can see some light snow and flurry action as north winds come across the lakes on Wednesday, but in general, if we miss out on the light snow and flurry potential, we will be dry through next Friday, but definitely colder. WE should see temps mostly normal to below normal through that period.The extended continues to show scattered precipitation for the 10th through the 12th. While action does not look as impressive, we still are leaving the door open for .25”-.75” across the region. We then have a weak wave for the 14th that brings a few hundredths to a quarter inch, and then a low over the great lakes for the 15th that brings .25”-.5”. Temps will be chilly to start the 11-16 day period, but will moderate to near and slightly above normal levels by mid-month.last_img

Why power is critical to everything in a digital world

first_imgSurveillance at the Heart of Smart Cities Shalin Shah For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… Infrastructure systems around the world are being strained due to unprecedented urbanization, continued globalization, and climate change. In addition, developing countries are struggling to build new infrastructure, while developed countries must replace aging infrastructure.Between now and 2030, an estimated minimum of $50 trillion in infrastructure investment is required to fuel global development. Cities such as Amsterdam are addressing these challenges in its Amsterdam Smart City initiative, launched in 2009, which includes 79 projects collaboratively developed by local residents, government, and businesses.Improving efficiency of services, not just energyA smart city should improve its quality of life through technology to improve the efficiency of services, especially for efficient transportation, intelligent buildings, and smart power grids. Many projects run on an interconnected platform through wireless devices to enhance a city’s real-time decision-making abilities. See also: Will microgrids drive IoT in tomorrow’s cities?These projects can reduce traffic, save energy, and improve public safety. The power of the data-driven world of the Internet of Things (IoT) is the promise that the consumer can finally take control of their environment. Whether travel, smart homes, or connected buildings, people are using the power of real-time sensors to understand and engage with their world. One of the biggest opportunities is for people to finally be able to interact with the one element that controls everything: power. With access to real-time data and the emergence of the digital grid, consumers can finally take control of their power needs at the edge of the grid, and finally see the promise in a true two-way grid that first started with smart meters and now will be delivered with the smart grid.Shalin Shah of SiemensDigital grid use cases and applications vary in their potential to add value. The use cases in the energy industry can be generally divided into three levels that represent increasing levels of value:Level 1: Modernizing infrastructure & improving operationsIt may be easy to overlook the importance of modernizing existing power infrastructure, but the bottom line is that we cannot rebuild our power grid from scratch. We have to rely on intelligent technologies to improve the systems we have in place to improve power quality and security and continue to deliver safe, affordable, and reliable energy to consumers. Utilities are transforming while still performing. For example, a large percentage of BC Hydro’s smart meter program benefits are realized in revenue protection. IoT-connected devices with tighter security have the ability to give utilities unprecedented levels of control over their operations through improved hardware and digital technologies.Level 2: Enhancing Efficiency & Cost SavingsFocusing on digital technology drives efficiencies across a utility’s business by increasing the opportunity to integrate new renewable generation and distributed energies into their system to help go beyond the scope of basic infrastructure and operations. Utilities are improving total uptime and reducing overall maintenance costs by deploying predictive maintenance analytics that increase the quantity and quality of maintenance schedules. For example, PPL Electric has reported a 38% improvement in service reliability enabled in part by the deployment of sophisticated analytical capabilities.Level 3: Business transformation services for more value-added services In the final level, the value to a utility goes far beyond basic operational enhancements or efficiency, ultimately leading to major change to the business value for the utility, typically reflected in the form of new products and services that are outside of the traditional utility model and offering more value-added services to consumers. The digital grid enables utilities to offer new services at both the wholesale and retail/consumer level by providing deeper insights on capacity demand, issue identification, pricing options, and more. Oklahoma Gas & Electric, in a bid to substantially shed load by 2020, is using customer analytics to gain visibility on individual customers’ responses to price signals. This is allowing them to identify the best customers to target with specific marketing campaigns.To address the challenges described above and realize the full potential of a true IoT for smart energy, we need to modernize utilities’ infrastructure, improve operations and enhance efficiencies first, but the ultimate goal is to transform into a customer-centric company that can offer more value-added services to the end-consumers.

BCCI suspends Rinku after letting off Pathan, Anuj with warning

first_imgSimilarly, no action was taken against former India U-19 captain Anuj Rawat for playing unsanctioned T20 league in Mauritius with Pakistani cricketers of dubious credibility.Rinku has also been a part of Kolkata Knight Riders for the past two seasons and it was learnt that he played in the unsanctioned league after the IPL got over.”It has been brought to the notice of the Board of Control for Cricket in India that First-class cricketer from Uttar Pradesh and India A player Rinku Singh participated in an unauthorized T20 tournament in Abu Dhabi,” BCCI issued a statement.”Singh did not seek permission from the BCCI before taking part in the T20 league hence directly violating the BCCI rules and regulations. As per the BCCI norms, a player registered with the Board cannot play in any tournaments abroad without the Board’s permission. Rinku Singh therefore has been suspended with immediate effect for a period of three months starting June 1, 2019,” BCCI announced the verdict.However there are questions being raised as to why Rinku, a young player wasn’t at least given a warning about the consequences he could face for his indiscretion.”If Irfan Pathan, who played significant amount of international cricket, was not even given a rap on the knuckles for registering in CPL after being well aware about the rules and regulations, suspending Rinku after his first mistake is simple double standards,” a senior BCCI official, privy with working of Cricket Operations team, told PTI on Thursday.When BCCI’s GM Cricket Operations Saba Karim was asked, he said: “We want to send a strong message to the youngsters that there would be consequences if they don’t follow the rules and regulations. I agree that Irfan is a senior player but he ultimately didn’t play the tournament.”advertisementThe senior official also questioned that if the logic of setting an example was an issue, then how come BCCI allowed Delhi keeper-batsman Anuj Rawat to go scot-free after he was seen playing alongside former Pakistan internationals, who till recently were in ICC anti-corruption unit’s radar.”If you want to teach any youngster a lesson, then it should be same for all. The Cricket Operations team let go Anuj Rawat, who immediately after that played for India U-19 in Sri Lanka. Here for the same offence, Rinku Singh was denied a chance to represent India,” he said.Read Also | World Cup 2019 favourites tag sits okay with England: Eoin MorganRead Also | England vs South Africa Live Cricket Score, World Cup 2019: Root, Roy solid after Tahir strikeAlso Seelast_img

first_imgMaguire: Leicester didn’t deserve Crystal Palace defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City defender Harry Maguire insists they didn’t deserve defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday.Maguire felt City should have created more chances with the possession they had in the second half but lamented Jamie Vardy’s bad luck after goalkeeper Vicente Guaita pushed his effort onto the post and it rebounded straight back into his arms.“Everyone is disappointed,” Maguire told LCFC TV.“We have worked tirelessly all week trying to put on a good performance this week and the first 20 minutes we started pretty slow.“There was not really any tempo from either team. They probably edged the first 20 minutes, but apart from the first 20 minutes I would say we were the better team and in control of the game.“They then scored when we were playing our best football and in our first spell of pressure. To be fair to the lad it is a great strike, a great finish. We’ll look back and we will work hard.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img

USF’s Technology Advancement Programme Gets Under Way

first_img The Government’s Technology Advancement Programme (TAP) is gathering momentum with the recent staging of an orientation session for participants in the island-wide programme. The Government’s Technology Advancement Programme (TAP) is gathering momentum with the recent staging of an orientation session for participants in the island-wide programme.Under TAP, one thousand unattached young persons between the ages 18-35 will receive training and practical experience in Information Communication Technology.The programme is being spearheaded by the Universal Service Fund, an agency of the Ministry of Science Energy and Technology. TAP will be executed over 12 months.Speaking at Wednesday’s orientation opening ceremony, Minister of Science Energy and Technology Dr the Honourable Andrew Wheatley said TAP is just one way his Ministry is helping to equip young Jamaicans with the skills needed to participate in the ever-growing global digital economy.“Globally ICT is a multibillion dollar industry which also enables practically every other line of business. Through TAP, persons with various levels of ICT exposure will increase their earning potential in the field of ICT whether as entrepreneurs or through gainful employment within the industry.”Minister Wheatley said. He added that the programme forms part of the USF’s mandate under the Telecommunications Act to create a knowledge based society through training for vulnerable groups, particularly young people.Benefits under TAP will be multi-faceted, as participants will also provide much needed human resource support to the Government of Jamaica in a bid to accelerate the ongoing digitization process.“There is a lot of data within Ministries, Departments and Agencies which we are not able to utilize as it is not in a format that makes it easy to analyse. With this information properly collated, analysed and at our fingertips, we will be able to make better-informed decisions in everyone’s best interest”Minister Wheatley said such data can help inform policies and programmes and drive economic growth.Training under The Technology Advancement Programme will commence in February 2018.
