Maestro Ancelotti gives Gattuso a lesson

first_imgThe 59-year-old’s side also trailed before getting past Lazio 2-1 in the season opener in Rome last weekend.AC Milan were playing their first match of the season after their game against Genoa was postponed because of the bridge disaster in the port city.But it was to be a bitter defeat for Milan coach Gattuso, 40, who played under Ancelotti when the latter was in charge of AC Milan, winning the Champions League together in 2007.Ancelotti praised the “great desire … to fight back vehemently,” by his side.“I have a fond memory of all my former players, but with Gattuso there is something special.“It’s a wonderful evening, one full of emotions for me.“Milan hadn’t really given many signs of being dangerous in attack, but surprised us with two goals.“It was very difficult in that situation, then we changed system and the crowd pushed us on to turn it around.”Ancelotti spent most of his career at AC Milan, winning three Serie A and four European titles as a player and coach with the northern giants.His last coaching job in Italy — before nine trophy-laden years abroad at clubs including Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich — was at the helm of Milan.AC Milan were playing their first match of the season after their game against Genoa was postponed because of the bridge disaster in the port city.Gattuso had said it was his dream to defeat his old “maestro” as Ancelotti had done as AC Milan coach over two decades ago beating his former boss Arrigo Sacchi’s Parma.“It hurts me to play so well at the San Paolo and then emerge empty-handed. Now we have to lick our wounds and go forward,” said Gattuso.Giacomo Bonaventura sensationally opened for Milan after 15 minutes with a Davide Calabria half-volley giving the visitors a two-goal advantage four minutes after the break.But Piotr Zielinski bagged a brace for Napoli in a 15-minute second half spell with substitute Dries Mertens sealing victory 10 minutes from time.“It’s acceptable to make a mistake but not to disappear from the pitch,” said Gattuso.“After we conceded the first goal we stopped playing.”Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain made his competitive debut for Milan but had little impact in his old stadium, along with new on-loan Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.Cristiano Ronaldo made his home debut for Juventus in a 2-0 win over Lazio, which after last week’s 3-2 win at Chievo gives the champions a maximum six points.Ronaldo is still waiting for his first goal with his new club with Miralem Pjanic putting the hosts in front at the Allianz Stadium after half an hour with Mario Mandzukic scoring the second on 75 minutes.Napoli play at Sampdoria next week with AC Milan looking for their first points at home against Roma, and Juventus travelling to promoted Parma.Lazio look for their first points against newcomers Frosinone.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti gives former AC Milan player Gennaro Gattuso a lesson in football.

Can Augmented Reality Help Save the Planet?

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#Augmented Reality#Features#web chris cameron 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe Appcenter_img Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend the Augmented Reality Event in Santa Clara, California, and it was there that I discovered some amazing uses being developed using AR technology. I’ve already highlighted how it is being used to help doctors save lives, and more recently how it could be used to level the battlefield for soldiers in the middle east. Another example has an even loftier goal: helping to fight the climate and energy crises and save the planet.Sean White, a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University and visiting scientist at the Smithsonian Institution, gave an inspiring talk at ARE 2010 about how he and others are experimenting with augmented reality and the environment. Climate change and other environmental challenges are “slow moving problems,” as White put it, so rich data visualization tools are needed to help scientists make sense of it all.Identifying Plant Species White has been working with botanists at the Smithsonian Institute to create mobile applications that can help scientists identify plant species in the field. Normally, identification requires looking at a leaf, and then flipping through pages of pictures to find a likely match. A skilled botanist can narrow down their search, but the process is still time consuming and difficult.Using image recognition technology, White and the Smithsonian have created mobile apps that can help identify leaves from pictures. Simply snap a picture of the leaf, and the app narrows down the search to likely matches. What’s more, the scientists can make the process even easier by strapping on a head-mounted display (HMD) and comparing real leaves to virtual ones displayed in an augmented reality view.Visualizing Carbon Dioxide Levels for Urban Planning White also had his hand in helping to develop technology that collects and visualizes CO2 levels in urban areas. By rigging together a device that both detects CO2 levels and receives highly-accurate GPS and elevation data, White was able to create detailed heat maps of urban areas and their CO2 levels. Taking that experiment a step further, the data was visualized in 3D space and superimposed onto an augmented reality view, providing a third dimension that takes data analysis beyond 2D maps. White says this kind of visualization helps determine causality when anomalies occur in the data. He recalled seeing high levels in one specific area but wasn’t able to determine the cause by looking at the 3D maps. By using the augmented reality view of the data, it was discovered that the area with high CO2 levels was near a street corner where large trucks waited in line to make deliveries. This type of analysis of the data would not have been possible by simply looking at a map.Finding Optimal Spots for Wind Turbines The third example White shared focused on wind turbines, and on using AR data visualizations to help pick the most optimal wind locations. Using light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology, scientists can point the devices up at the air from a spot on the ground and watch particulates float by to determine wind speeds and directions.In the past, large towers were erected to detect this type of data, but they are expensive, limited in their range and take a long time to set up. Using LiDAR, which is cheaper and easier to use, scientists can cover larger areas and collect more data and reconstruct it into visualizations. They can then use augmented reality to see this data overlaid onto their real-world view to find ideal spots for wind towers.AR is a StartWhat else can AR do to help Mother Earth? An interesting implementation I would enjoy seeing would be to create 3D visualizations that help show the slow death march of the climate crisis. For instance, travellers visiting glaciers could hold up their devices and see what the landscape looked like from their perspective in years past – revealing the gradual retreat of glaciers from global warming.So can augmented reality help save the planet? Not all by itself, no. But when used to help both scientists and everyday people better see the data in the world around them, it can certainly be a useful tool. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Chris Cairns, Sachin Tendulkar, Shaun Pollock shine in Super Selector competition

An uneventful week for the junior Waugh who – incidentally the world-record holder for the most catches in Tests – was not even among the five Australians who held catches at the Gabba.There are now 2,65,000 cricket fans participating in the November ESPNStar Sports Super Selector game show.

Chris Gayle’s sexist remark leaves women’s rights group fuming

first_imgWest Indies’ Chris Gayle bowls against Sri Lanka during their warm-up match of the ICC Twenty20 World Cup at the Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka March 19, 2014. Picture by REUTERSA women’s rights group here has condemned as “sexist” remarks made by Jamaica Tallawahs captain Chris Gayle to a female journalist at a media conference.And the group, Women Against Rape (WAR) headed by gender equity advocate Alexandrina Wong, has also criticised the response by the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) to the incident, reports CMC.Ahead of Thursday’s CPL clash here between Tallawahs and Antigua Hawksbills, Gayle, a former West Indies Test skipper, was asked Wednesday by the journalist: “How does the pitch feel so far in terms of the training (and) the weather?”The 34-year-old Gayle responded: “Well I haven’t touched yours yet so I don’t know how it feels”, before adding “I like your smile; that’s nice.”However, the CPL downplayed the incident, saying that Gayle was just sharing a light moment with the female journalist.”Chris is excited for the tournament and was having a laugh with a journalist, who had a laugh back; there was no malice intended,” the Antigua Observer quoted a CPL spokesman as saying.”The lady in question had a jovial goodbye chat with him and we don’t believe this was the action of someone who was offended.”Wong slammed Gayle’s statement and also called on the CPL to elicit an apology from the Twenty20 star.”What it’s implying is one person’s power over another in the use of the language and so we can either say it’s sexist and hegemonic,” Wong said, adding that the response from the reporter “indicates that she obviously doesn’t know her right to autonomy”.advertisement”She obviously doesn’t know her right when it comes to agency of body so that she can identify certain types of language, how they allude to her biology and what it’s saying about her as a person,” Wong said.”CPL should demand an apology from him because as senior officials they ought to know and to behave better when it comes to gender equality.”last_img read more

FSL Deal with Navios Not Feasible

first_imgzoom After it terminated an earlier agreement to sell its shares to Navios Maritime Holdings, FSL Trust Management said that the move was made as the proposed transaction “would not be feasible.”The company, a trustee-manager of Singapore-based First Ship Lease Trust, signed a term sheet with Navios in April 2017 to sell 154.4 million shares in FSL Trust, representing around 24.2% of the total number of issued units in FSL Trust, for a total of USD 20 million.FSL Trust said that it was of the view that the proposed transaction would not be feasible and sought to negotiate terms with Navios.As no definitive structure was agreed to, nor definitive documentation executed, prior to the end of the exclusivity period granted under the term sheet, it was automatically terminated in accordance with the terms thereof.The company informed that the termination has no material financial impact on the group as the term sheet was non-binding and no definitive and binding agreement has been entered into between the parties in relation to the transaction.FSL said that it is and will be considering all options available, including any further proposals from Navios, in order to achieve refinancing and ensure “the long-term stability of FSL Trust amid the volatility and reduction in vessel values.”last_img read more
