Ribery sends his brother Vidal an emotional farewell message

first_imgBayern Munich’s Franck Ribery posted an emotional farewell message to his departed teammate Arturo Vidal, who has just sealed a surprise move to BarcelonaThe Chile international’s future at Munich appeared to be nearing its end throughout the entire summer after his playing opportunities became increasingly more restrictive in his three-year spell.Inter Milan had been the favourites to sign Vidal and at one point seemed on the verge of making the signing, before Barcelona made a last-minute bid for his services.And now a deal has been completed that will see Vidal wear the famous Blaugrana shirt next season.While his time at Bayern ended on a sour note with just a mere 17 league starts last season, Vidal will still be missed at the Bavaria with Ribery wishing his friend well for the future.He wrote on Twitter: “Brother, you do not know how much I’m going to miss you!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.“For me you are the best, a man of values and principles. I am very proud to have played by your side!“I wish you the best for your future, you are a warrior and that is rare in our profession.”Hermano no sabes a que punto te voy a echar de menos! Para mi eres el mejor, un hombre de valores y principios. Estoy muy orgulloso de haber jugado a tu lado! Te deseo lo mejor para tu futuro, eres un guerrero y eso se encuentra poco en nuestra profesión. ???????? @kingarturo23 pic.twitter.com/eq7M8i29er— Franck Ribéry (@FranckRibery) August 3, 2018last_img read more

Harry Kane is not a machine says Erik Lamela

first_imgErik Lamela has risen to the defence of under-fire Tottenham teammate Harry Kane by insisting that it’s only a matter of time before he hits top form againThe English striker had another disappointing game on Tuesday night and was unable to have an impact as Spurs’ lost the opening game of their 2018/19 Champions League campaign 2-1 away to Inter Milan.After being crowned the World Cup Golden Boot winner at Russia this summer, Kane has now gone five games without finding the net for both club and country.The 25-year-old did little to improve matters for himself at the San Siro, but Lamela believes that Kane shouldn’t have to bear the scoring burden for Spurs by himself.Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in next week’s UCL Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in the competition.Atletico…“Harry is not a machine. He scores a lot. He always scores,” Lamela told BT Sport.“Here he didn’t and for two or three games he didn’t. But he will score again.“It’s not like Harry needs to score every single game. Christian (Eriksen) scored, I scored in the last game. Sonny (Son Heung-min) will score. Lucas (Moura) will score. All the pressure is not on Harry.“All the attacking players need to score. And that’s it.”last_img read more

King Fishing On Lower Peninsula Streams Open With Restrictions

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) have opened the Anchor River, Deep Creek, Stariski Creek, and the Ninilchik River drainages to sport fishing limited to one unbaited, single-hook, artificial lure. The sport fishing restriction is effective starting at 12:01 a.m. Monday, July 16 through 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, July 31. Area Management Biologist Carol Kerkvliet: “With the current low king salmon returns, gear restrictions are necessary to protect upstream migrating king salmon needed for escapement needs.” In conjunction with this restriction, a sport fishing regulation closure was issued closing king salmon fishing within the conservation zones surrounding the Anchor River, Stariski Creek, Deep Creek, and Ninilchik River. King salmon incidentally caught while fishing for other fish may not be removed from the water and must be immediately released. Kerkvliet: “To minimize the shifting effort due to conservation actions for the Anchor River and Ninilchik River, it is warranted to restrict gear on Deep Creek and Stariski Creek, as well. Anglers are still allowed to fish for hatchery king salmon using one unbaited, single-hook, artificial lure.”last_img read more

Bigg Boss 12 enemies Dipika Kakar and Romil Chaudhary to play lovers

first_imgDipika Kakar and Romil Chaudhary of Bigg Boss 12 fameinstagramEven as Dipika Kakar, who won Bigg Boss 12, is in news to play the lead in Sandip Sikcand’s tentatively titled Paani Puri, reports of another Bigg Boss 12 contestant Romil Chaudhary being approached by the makers to play an important role is also doing the rounds.”The producers are in talks with him. It is highly probable that he will get on board. The makers are keen on him,” a source told Bollywood Life.Romil, who entered the reality show as a commoner, and Dipika never got along during their stint inside the Bigg Boss 12 house. So, when the news of Dipika and Romil coming together broke, it created waves among fans.And now, a SpotboyE report said that Romil is not only on board the show but will romance Dipika on screen. Shocked? Well, looks like fans of both Dipika and Romil will see the enemies turn lovers on screen soon. The show will also star Karan V Grover as one of the leads.Talking about the actress and Romil’s equation on Bigg Boss 12, the two couldn’t see eye to eye on the reality show. Dipika had even expressed her hatred towards the contestant in her winning interview.Coming to Sikcand’s show, before Dipika, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya was approached to play the role. She had in fact agreed to come on board as at that time there were talks of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein going off air. However, Divyanka had to turn it down after her show got extended and Ekta Kapoor offered Divyanka her digital debut Cold Lassi And Chicken Masala.last_img read more

Carbon Nanotube Windmills Powered by Electron Wind

first_img Explore further The proposed (a) nanomotor and (b) nanodrill, where the red inner CNT rotates due to an electron wind. The nanomotor is attached to gold electrodes, which act as electron reservoirs, while the nanodrill has one end contacted to a mercury electrode. Credit: S.W.D. Bailey, et al. Tiny tubes move into the fast lane As Steven Bailey, Ilias Amanatidis, and Colin Lambert explain in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters, the new drive mechanism could be useful for future NEMS (nanoelectromechanical structures) technologies. “[Previously,] thoughts have been directed towards ‘pushing’ the motor to make it turn, whereas our suggestion harnesses an intrinsic property of the device: the change in momentum of electrons or phonons, for example,” Bailey told PhysOrg.com.The researchers describe the proposed nanomotor as a carbon nanotube (CNT) windmill, although the device looks more like a telescope than the conventional spinning blades of a windmill. It consists of a double-walled CNT, where the outer tube is clamped to two external electrodes, and the shorter inner tube is free to move and rotate. In a version called the CNT drill, the outer tube is clamped to just one electrode, while one end of the free inner tube is in contact with a mercury electrode, but is still free to rotate. The devices are called windmills because they’re powered by an applied dc voltage between the electrodes, which produces a “wind” of electrons.As it moves through the CNT, the flow of electrons acquires angular momentum, producing a tangential force that causes the inner nanotube to rotate. The researchers calculated that the electron wind can produce a force that significantly exceeds the inter-wall friction – sometimes by as much as three orders of magnitude. Depending on the applied voltage, the rotating inner tube can reach CNT breakdown velocities of up to 8,000 meters per second.The electron-wind-powered nanomotor could have a range of applications. For instance, by using a voltage pulse to make the inner tube rotate at a specific angle, it could be used as a switch or memory element in nanoscale magnetic memory devices; or, by putting the CNT in contact with a reservoir of atoms or molecules, the nanomotor could act as a nanofluidic pump.The physicists also suggest that the motor could be powered in different ways. In one possibility, the electrodes could be replaced with reservoirs of atoms or molecules. Then, an applied pressure difference could drive the atoms or molecules across the CNT, and their angular momentum could cause the inner tube to rotate. Similarly, a temperature difference between the ends of the CNT could create a flux of phonons that could also drive the motor. Other CNT-based nanomotors have been developed, including multi-walled CNTs with a similar structure to the CNT windmill. However, these previous designs have been powered by electrostatic forces that require metallic plates and gates, which aren’t needed in the new design. The researchers hope that the efficiency and simplicity of the CNT windmills will provide advantages over electrostatic and other nanomotors in the future.“The capability to engineer nanoscale motors is at the same stage as that of microscale motors in the 1990s,” Bailey said. “The manufacturing techniques to deal with the very low dimensions are always playing catch up with experimental groups, which are making very rapid progress, and we predict that to test out the CNT windmill will not require much change to established procedures within these groups. Indeed, there should be much less construction involved in making the nanomotor devices. The engineering simplicity of the CNT windmill will be the greatest advantage in the future.”More information: Bailey, S.W.D; Amanatidis, I.; and Lambert, C.J. “Carbon Nanotube Electron Windmills: A Novel Design for Nanomotors.” Physical Review Letters 100, 256802 (2008).Copyright 2008 PhysOrg.com.

Wenger rues lack of efficiency

first_imgA subdued and sombre Arsene Wenger was left to rue Arsenal’s lack of efficiency after his team lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United on Saturday in a game they dominated. ‘We have not dominated many games against United like we did today but we were not efficient enough and made defensive mistakes. We had plenty of opportunities to win the game and we are very disappointed. We were a bit naive,’ Wenger told a news conference. Wenger’s misery was compounded by injuries to midfielder Jack Wilshere and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who were both forced off in the second half.  ‘Jack has an ankle injury. I don’t know how bad it is yet. Wojciech is not bad,’ he said.Arsenal have slipped to eighth in the EPL table, 15 points behind Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.last_img
