Tesla to build world’s largest lithium-ion battery in South Australia

first_imgDavid Curry Related Posts Tesla has won a contract to build the largest lithium-ion battery in the world in South Australia, which, at 129MWh, will be three times larger than the current holder, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.The battery will be supplied renewable energy from French utility Neoen’s Hornsdale wind farm. The framework used will be similar to Tesla’s Powerpack, the company’s industrial energy storage solution announced in 2015.See Also: Seat adjustments still manual, as Tesla shuffles Autopilot execsIn March, Musk said Tesla could get the system running in 100 days or it’s free, an audacious offer that is in the final contract. The company recently completed a 80MWh test run in California, managing to build the battery farm in 90 days.The battery will form part of South Australia’s $550 AUD million ($380 million) energy plan, drawn up after a statewide energy blackout in the region. Some Australian politicians have accused the state government of moving too quickly to renewables, while others suggest rising demand is the cause.This will be the highest power battery system in the world by a factor of 3. Australia rocks!! https://t.co/c1DD7xtC90— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 7, 2017“You can essentially charge up the battery packs when you have excess power when the cost of production is very low… then discharge it when the cost of power production is high, and this effectively lowers the average cost to the end customer,” said Musk.Tesla already has the largest battery factory in the world, with the Gigafactory, so adding the biggest battery to the list of achievements seems only natural. The announcement comes amid a whirlwind of bad press for the company, its stock price plummeting to $310 from $365 at the start of the month.

India Slip Down Further to 106 in Latest FIFA Rankings, Belgium Remain No. 1

first_imgKolkata: The Indian football team slipped two places to 106 in the latest FIFA rankings released on Thursday after their 1-1 draw with much lower-ranked Bangladesh in the World Cup qualifier earlier this month.Despite securing an impressive 0-0 draw against Asian champions Qatar in September, the home stalemate against then 187th ranked Bangladesh saw India drop two ranks from 104 to 106 in the latest tally. Bangladesh, meanwhile, jumped three spots to 184 riding the result which their head coach Jamie Day had described as being similar to India’s famous tie against Qatar.Meanwhile, Belgium has remained at the top spot in the rankings with France and Brazil also holding on to their positions.Top-ten rivals Uruguay (5th, up 1), Croatia (7th, up 1), Argentina (9th, up 1) have edged closer to the summit, according to the FIFA website.But the most significant rises are to be found further down the Ranking, where the in-form quartet of Ukraine (22nd, up 3), Japan (28th, up 3), Turkey (32nd, up 4) and Russia (37th, up 5) are among the more notable climbers.Jumps of ten or more places have also been made by a clutch of teams outside the top 50, namely Nicaragua (137th, up 11), South Sudan (162nd, up 11), Barbados (160th, up 10) and São Tomé and Príncipe (180th, up 10).And there are celebrations, too, for Kosovo (114th, up 5), who can again feel pride on their best Ranking position to date.

Boxing: Julio Cesar Chavez Jr to fight Sergio Mora on September 7

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementJulio César Chávez Jr. has just announced that he will face the always-game Sergio Mora. This fight will happen at a catch weight of 171 pounds.Regardless of what most fans have to say about Chavez Jr, this fight is expected to be action-packed from the opening bell. Both fighters have a come-forward style that should be rewarding for the fans. They both look the best against other come-straight-at-you type of fighters.Chavez Jr has not stepped into the squared circle since his lopsided defeat at the hands of Saul Canelo Alvarez on Cinco de Mayo 2017. If Chavez Jr takes this fight seriously, this should be an interesting contest. At the very least, he does have 32 KOs to his name.Mora’s last rodeo was against the always-tough Alfredo Ángulo this past March. Mora won by split decision. The one card that went against Mora came at the hands of now-infamous Adelaide Byrd. In honest opinion, she doesn’t have the best track record of accurately scoring fights. Mora does have pop, as we have seen him floor one of the middleweight division’s best in Daniel Jacobs.Chavez Jr vs Mora will most likely not see the final bell. When fully prepared, both guys come to fight and should not disappoint. We should see it end by stoppage. Chavez Jr. has also stated that if he wins, he would like a rematch against Sergio Martinez. Hopefully, with that in mind, he should be looking to impress in order to generate some interest for that fight.Tune in on September 7th as these two warriors face off. We all should be in for a treat, or at the very least be entertained while the fight lasts.Also Read-Boxing: Adrien Broner vs Sergey Lipinets possible for later this yearlast_img read more

Sebastian Vettel not ready to give up on championship yet

first_imgFerrari’s Sebastian Vettel refused to give up on the Formula One championship on Thursday and found support from title favourite Lewis Hamilton.Hamilton leads the German by 59 points with four races left and the Mercedes driver can take his fourth championship in Sunday’s U.S. Grand Prix if he finishes in the top two and results go his way.”In English, they say it’s not over until the fat lady sings,” Vettel told reporters in the U.S. Grand Prix paddock. “We need to make sure she shuts up for quite a while.”Vettel led the championship from the opening race in Australia in March until last month but three races in the Far East and Hamilton’s string of wins have shredded his chances.#Driveforthecure #USGP @SusanGKomen pic.twitter.com/QKiAwmYVrL- Scuderia Ferrari (@ScuderiaFerrari) October 19, 2017The Ferrari driver was caught in a collision with team mate Kimi Raikkonen in Singapore and crashed out on the opening lap, then suffered an engine failure in qualifying in Malaysia that left him last on the grid.He raced back to fourth that time but in Japan was sidelined by a broken spark plug.”We are still in there, our chances are slimmer than they have been some races ago. There is a chance. We’re going for it,” said the four times world champion.#Seb5: I still think we have a chance #USGP pic.twitter.com/vlyASag4wm- Scuderia Ferrari (@ScuderiaFerrari) October 19, 2017″We need to stay focused. We have a great car, we had a package to win the last couple of races. As it happens, we didn’t. But that doesn’t mean we have no chance to win the next races.”advertisementHamilton, who has won in Austin four times in the last five years, said talk of wrapping up the title in Texas – as he did two years ago – was overblown.”I think the talk of the championship win this weekend is silly really…you can’t expect them to have a difficult weekend again,” he said.”They’re going to be quick, they have an opportunity to win.

LeBron’s 44 Helps Cavs Even Series with Celtics

first_imgCLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James knows the path to the NBA Finals better than anyone in today’s game.And unless the Boston Celtics do something soon, he’ll get there again.James bullied his way to 44 points, surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar atop a postseason list and helped the Cleveland Cavaliers even the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2 on Monday night with a 111-102 victory over the Celtics, who are looking forward to getting home before their adoring fans.Pushed by a raucous crowd that wasn’t so confident a few days ago, the Cavs held off Boston’s comeback in the fourth quarter and squared a tight series that is now a best-of-three.Cleveland is trying to become the 20th team — out of 300 — to overcome a 2-0 deficit and James, who has already orchestrated two such rallies and is seeking his eighth straight finals, is a step closer to a third.To do it again the Cavs will have to win in Boston, where the Celtics are 9-0 this postseason.“We know it’s going to be a hostile environment,” James said. “We know their fans are going to be very energetic. But we have to just have our same mindset we had when we came home for these two games. If our minds are there, we put ourselves in a position to be victorious.”Boston Celtics’ Terry Rozier (12) drives on Cleveland Cavaliers’ Tristan Thompson (13) in the second half of Game 4 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals, Monday, May 21, 2018, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)Game 5 is Wednesday night at TD Center, and Celtics coach Brad Stevens is trying to stay positive with a team that has given up a 2-0 lead and fell to 1-6 on the road in these playoffs.“It’s the best two out of three to go to the NBA Finals. Doesn’t get better than that,” he said. “Ultimately, anybody that didn’t think this was going to be tough, I mean, everything is tough. In this deal, it’s a blast to have to grit your teeth, get up off the mat and go after it again.”Kyle Korver added 14 points and Cleveland’s sharp-shooting 37-year-old added three block and several hustle plays, outrunning three Celtics in one sequence and diving for a loose ball.“I’ve loved Kyle ever since we made the trade to get him here” James said. “I don’t remember Kyle falling too much like that. I’ve got to keep his body as fresh as possible. But listen, he’s doing whatever it takes to try to help us win, with the blocks, with the strips. Obviously his shot making is very key for our team as well, but it’s just the intangibles he’s doing for us defensively.”Tristan Thompson had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Cavs, who won despite 19 turnovers and two assists in the second half. Kevin Love had just nine points on 3-of-12 shooting and was in foul trouble, but he made a big 3-pointer and follow shot in the fourth quarter.Jaylen Brown scored 25 and Boston had all five scorers in double figures, but the Celtics fell behind by 19 in the first half and didn’t have enough to catch Cleveland.And, of course, they didn’t have James, who moved past Abdul-Jabbar (2,356) for the most field goals in playoff history. James also recorded his 25th career postseason game with at least 40 points — his sixth in this postseason.The Celtics hung around in the second half and pulled within 100-93 on Marcus Smart’s basket with 4:29 left. But Thompson got free for a dunk, and after a miss by Boston, James recovered after making his seventh turnover by making a steal and layup.Moments later, James drilled a 3-pointer from the left wing to finally put away the young Celtics, who will now feel the immense pressure of trying to hold off the three-time champion.“He’s the best in the game at evaluating the court and figuring out what he wants and where he wants it,” Stevens said. “The thing about it is that you just have to battle. You just have to make it as hard as possible, because he’s going to find a matchup that he ultimately wants.”Stevens considered changing his starting lineup, but decided to stick with the same first five — Brown, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Al Horford, and Terry Rozier — as the first three games.Boston’s starters held their own, but none of them was able to match James when it mattered most.“You hope he misses, that’s about it,” Rozier said. “He’s a big body and you’ve just got to keep him in front, and hope he misses.”TIP-INSCeltics: Stevens was evasive about his starting lineup during his pregame news conference, not wanting to give the Cavs any advance notice. “We will start five people. I promise,” he said, drawing laughs from media members. … Injured stars Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving are not traveling with the team so they can continue their respective rehabs. Both have been sitting on the bench with their teammates in Boston.Cavaliers: Won their seventh straight playoff game at home. … Love threw one of his patented “touchdown” passes in the first quarter to James, who outmaneuvered Smart and Brown like a wide receiver to make the catch and score. … Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, the No. 1 pick in last month’s NFL draft, attended the game. … Improved to 9-3 vs. Boston in the playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena.AMONGST GIANTSJames seems to reach a milestone every game and he was honored to pass Abdul-Jabbar’s mark.“To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I’m in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs — it’s pretty cool,” he said. “You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn’t care much about scoring.”OLD MAN KORVERFrozen water was Korver’s postgame beverage.“I’m going to be hurting tomorrow,” he said. “My back’s a little sore, my elbow is a little sore, but this is fun basketball. It’s the playoffs. We’re at home. The crowd was rocking tonight. And it just kind of takes over you sometimes. So, yeah, whatever it takes.”SLOW STARTFor the second game in a row, the Celtics struggled in the first quarter.Boston got some open looks, but shot just 27 percent (7 of 26) in the first 12 minutes with both Tatum and Brown missing dunks. Also, Morris picked up three quick fouls.UP NEXTGame 5 is Wednesday in Boston.—By TOM WITHERS , AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Notes On Mike Gundy’s Texas Press Conference

first_imgIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! The head man gave us about 30 minutes full of good stuff on Monday recapping Baylor and previewing Texas. Shared some interesting bits about The Mad Hatter, the two QB system, his Justice Hill comments, our O-line, and, believe it or not, Sponge Bob!He also hit two bingo spots in the first 10 seconds: “back at it” and “ack-u-rut.”@KOCOCarson two bingo squares in 10 seconds! pic.twitter.com/D8iilmu5j6— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) September 27, 2016Opening Remarks• “Back at it. The postgame comments after Baylor were pretty accurate. I came back to work last night as always and we’re working on Texas. They’re very similar to what we’ve seen in the past. A lot of big guys up front…speed on the perimeter.”• “I don’t think it’s any secret they have gone to the style of offense that a lot of people are going to. The young quarterback (Shane Buechele) seems to be throwing the ball pretty well and accurate – seems to be a good fit for them, seems to fit the system they’re trying to execute. Very accurate, is mobile enough, his arm is strong. He throws the ball like a baseball player.”• “The big guy they’ve had for the last few years (Tyrone Swoopes) has come in and done a good job for them in certain situations.”On Texas’ Physicality• “They’ve been this way every year. The personnel for them doesn’t change much. They very seldom play with under-sized players at any position.”• Regarding the RB size and Swoopes’ size – “Well, you have to account for him when he’s in the game. I would venture to guess that they have packages where he shows run and jumps up and throws it and passes it. They’ve had physical backs. It’s not anything new for them. You know, (Chris) Warren is a guy that we were into the end with. We felt like we had a good chance to get him. He’s growing up to be exactly what we thought he would be.”• What about their two-QB system – why does it work? Is it the same as what you did with JW last year? “Same concept in my opinion, as an outsider looking in.”• “Swoopes brings another dimension to the table. So, I’m guessing they feel like, in certain circumstances, he’s the best chance to be successful. That’s why we used two players last year, and I think it’s a great scheme. I wish that we had it and they didn’t.” Interesting!Dealing with Texas’ Defense• “We have schemes that we feel like, if they’re executed properly, should be successful on a three-down defense. I don’t see them shelving one plan and going to 4 down.”• On Malik Jefferson: “He’s lived up to being a five-star player. You’ve just got to find a way to block him and find a way to get him moving different directions.”On Les Miles• “I was sad for Coach Miles. He’s a very good football coach. He cares a lot about the game. I know that he was still very youthful and energetic in his practices with his team.”• “From what I understand he had the best winning percentage in the history of the school, including Coach Saban.”• “I told Berry Tramel this morning, I had taken a quote from Mike Leach, told him, you stay at one place long enough, they’re probably going to fire you.”On the Cowboys’ Offense – O-line, Justice Hill, and the WRs• How is Washington dealing with the more extensive defensive coverage? “He’s doing good. Baylor had a plan for him. Obviously, Coach Bennett watched the tape and he’s understood his ability. They tracked him throughout the game. He’s going to start to see some coverages. If so, we’ve got to be able to run the football.”• On the O-line – Larry Williams and Marcus Keyes in particular: “They’ve improved a little bit, but they have a long way to go. They’ve given us a little shot in the arm at times. Their effort and their willingness to want to be good players, has helped our team.”• This was encouraging! “We turned fewer guys loose last week at Baylor than we have in two years. We had guys covered up.”• And this was good on Zac Crabtree: “He had several plays where he was really good, but he needs to learn to finish his blocks. He’s on the right guy and he’s getting into his fourth and fifth step, but he’s not finishing his blocks. Like the first play of the game, he needs to finish his block. That’ll make us a much better team. From an assignment standpoint, he’s going to be high way up there in the nineties.”• Regarding Justice Hill, the turnovers, and your comments played up in the media. How did he handle it? “You’ll have to give me the Cliff’s Notes version – I was a big Cliff’s Notes guy in college – on what happened in the paper and the media. I watched Sponge Bob instead.” Yes, he really said that.• “I understand he’s a true freshman, but we want him carrying the ball. On that first fumble I have to give credit to Baylor’s defender because he was in there deep, reached hard and pulled, did very good in whatever he’s been coached him to do, just like number 40’s done for us. And the second time, he’s fighting for extra yards.”• “My comments after the game were because I was upset for our team – coaches and players – because we were in a position to win the game and, I’m not the smartest guy in the world, but when you turn the ball over multiple times in critical points on the field and you give up big plays on defense – we gave up nine against Pitt and gave up ten against Baylor – it’s very difficult to win. You have to have a much superior athletic team. Well, Oklahoma State’s not been in that position…very much. So what happens then is you lose.”• This was really cool on No. 27: “I’m a big Justice Hill fan, but, you have to take care of the football. They don’t stop and say, ‘Oh, well you’re a true freshman, we’re going to give you that one back.’ They all count and he understands that. He’s a very intelligent young man. Comes from a very good home, he’s been raised the right way and so constructive criticism is not something he’s going to shy away from. If you’re asking me because he fumbled what are we going to do? We’re going to give him the ball and make him run it again.”• The last time Hill had meaningful carries he was running against guys from like Sand Springs… “Which they were pretty good last year though. They weren’t as good as Midwest City but they had a heck of a year. The two times (of great adjustment), for a football player, when you’re an 8th grader and you go to being a freshman in high school; and then when you’re a senior and you go to being a freshman in college. It’s a considerable speed, size and strength difference. Unfortunately, sometimes the only way to learn is what he went through.”• “Those comments after the game were, in a sense, directed toward him; but, I also to the whole team. The quarterback put the ball on the ground, too. But that’s for everybody on our team. If we don’t take care of the football and we continue to give up huge chunk plays then on Sunday we are going to be sad.”• On McCleskey and the WR crew: “When 28 gets double-covered, then 1, 81, 17, those guys have to become a factor. We also need to involve our Cowboy Backs more. Those guys have to make plays. It becomes a numbers game. If there’s two people on one guy, and the other guys are getting single coverage. It’s the same thing that happens down here in Dallas a lot with Dez.”• On Marcel Ateman’s return: “October 1st, I think is what I said, so he’s got five days, six days – whatever it is – they’ll scan his foot or ankle or whatever he’s got an issue with. They’ll scan him and go from there.” Is there a chance we see him Saturday? “No.”• What about Mason? “I thought he had his best game pulling the ball down and scrambling for positive yards in crucial situations. He played pretty well overall. He missed a couple throws. I think he had maybe two reads that could have gone the other way which is fairly common in a hundred-and-something play game. Where I think he really stepped up is in his ability to pull the ball down and fight for extra yards.”Wrapping up…• You’re the only coach to win 4 times in a row Austin, but you never beat them here. “I didn’t know that until you just now told me. I was unaware of that. Didn’t we travel down there twice in a row one time? Yeah, and then we were ahead of them here a couple of times and, Vince Young took the game over in the second half…three times? Thanks for telling me.”• “We’ve actually overall, played fairly well against them. A couple years ago we didn’t play good. Where, uh, was Daxx quarterbacking? I mean, he had no chance. He should have filed a lawsuit against us after the game for assault…on ourselves.”• “I think our players look forward to playing in this game. I don’t think they have a chip on their shoulder like, ‘I want to get Texas’; but, I would say…” Picks up press guide… “I’m going to use this for the first time. They put this up here for me and I’ve never used it because I think they think I’m going to forget who our own team is. But if you went through this roster, you’d maybe find one or two guys they recruited. Maybe? Maybe not anybody, I’m not sure. But I think some of them would like to play in this game for that reason.”• Are you frustrated or just angry with defense? “Let me give you the positive from this last game. We played our best game on special teams. We ran the football effectively on offense. We stayed fairly balanced but, we turned the ball over. In this game defensively, we stopped the run. Last year, we couldn’t stop the run. The two ways that most coaches, including myself, get frustrated is when you can’t stop the other team from running the ball because it just wears on you. And then the second thing, is when you give up the big plays. The positive is we at least did a better job of slowing down the run against them. And the negative of it is that our safeties were so involved that we were isolated on man coverage on the corners.”• Finally, this on the deep balls by Baylor…and some quarterback from the 80s: “When their guy started to stutter, before he even came out of the route, the ball was already in the air. I’ve not seen many guys that could do that. Weeden could do it a little. Josh Fields could do it whenever he wanted. Those are the only two guys I’ve ever been around that could let go of the ball that early on double moves and then hit a guy right in stride. We don’t like it. We’re not going to accept it. We’re going to coach it and get better. But, I am giving them credit on their ability to throw the deep ball. If you just go off percentages, the only guy that’s probably better than him played in the late 80’s. Other than that, he’s pretty good at it. That’s the only guy.”last_img read more

Chile takes down Colombia in penalties to move onto semi-final

first_imgChile kept their Copa America title defence alive with a penalty shoot-out win over Colombia in the quarter-finals on Friday.In what was a largely scrappy and tight encounter, two-time defending champions Chile were held to a 0-0 draw at the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo.Chile twice thought they had found a breakthrough, but strikes from Charles Aranguiz and Arturo Vidal were ruled out after VAR reviews.

But they delivered in the penalty shoot-out, Alexis Sanchez converting the winner to seal a 5-4 success after William Tesillo missed for Colombia. EN VIVO | PENALES #LaRoja¡GOL DE @Alexis_Sanchez Y CHILE SE INSTALA EN SEMIFINALES DE LA #COPAAMERICA!:: #CopaAmerica #VamosChile  pic.twitter.com/h34DFCFSwO— Selección Chilena (@LaRoja) June 29, 2019Chile edged the first half and Aranguiz forced a superb save from Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina with a 12th-minute header, although the VAR would likely have ruled out the effort for offside if it had gone in.Aranguiz thought he had given his side the lead just four minutes later.Sanchez played in Jean Beausejour down the left and Ospina, along with Davinson Sanchez, made a mess of the cross, with Aranguiz netting from an angle.However, the goal was ruled out after a VAR review, with replays showing Sanchez was narrowly offside down the left.The first half lacked any real rhythm, with Guillermo Maripan heading a Beausejour cross over 10 minutes before the break and Vidal curling a Sanchez pass just wide moments later.The battle continued after the break, with efforts from distance or set-pieces appearing the most likely avenues to a goal for both teams.The VAR was again involved after Chile thought they had their opener through Vidal in the 71st minute.Vidal finished clinically from inside the area, but the goal was ruled out after Sanchez’s volley hit the arm of Maripan in the build-up.That was the last of the opportunities through 90 minutes before Chile were too good in the shoot-out.Vidal, Eduardo Vargas, Erick Pulgar and Aranguiz produced fine spot-kicks before Tesillo fired wide, Sanchez stepping up to put away the winner. What does it mean? Chile edge throughChile are still on track for a remarkable third straight Copa America title. They were the better team for longer periods against Colombia and deserved their win.Chile continue Colombia dominanceColombia just cannot get past Chile. For the fourth time in Copa America knockout games, Chile beat Colombia, while they are undefeated in their eight clashes at neutral venues.Not capitalising on Sao Paulo trafficBoth teams reportedly arrived later than expected at the ground due to traffic in Sao Paulo, but Chile particularly so, leading to kick-off being delayed. Perhaps because of that, Colombia looked dangerous in the opening 20 minutes without taking advantage and Chile settled into the contest from there.Key Opta Facts:- Chile have lost only two of their past 16 games played across the previous three Copa America tournaments.- Colombia kept a clean sheet for the fifth straight Copa America game – their second longest run in the competition.- Chile have won their past three penalty shoot-outs at the Copa America.- There were only three shots on target, the second least in a knockout game at the past four Copa America tournaments.- Vargas completed only four passes in 90 minutes against Colombia.What’s next?Chile will face either Uruguay or Peru in a semi-final in Porto Alegre on Wednesday, while Colombia look ahead to friendlies with Brazil and Venezuela in September. read morelast_img read more

England vs Pakistan, World Cup 2019 Match 6: Prediction and Probable Playing 11

first_img India Today Web Desk NottinghamJune 3, 2019UPDATED: June 3, 2019 11:41 IST Team England in Cricket World Cup 2019. (AP Photo)After being blasted apart by West Indies in their opening game, Pakistan will look to make amends, especially in their batting, and aim for a comeback when they take on confident England in their second World Cup fixture at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Monday.While Pakistan lack consistency, England, on the other hand, seem to have all their bases covered. Their batting clicked against South Africa with Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes all scoring half centuries and making sure they went past the 300-run mark against South Africa.Their bowling has also been bolstered with the inclusion of Jofra Archer who bowled with sheer pace and gave a hard time to the Proteas batsmen at the Kennington Oval.Recent formPakistan suffered their 11th straight ODI loss in their dismal opening match against the West Indies at Trent Bridge where they were dismissed for a paltry 105 in 21.4 overs. But, before being bullied by West Indies, they were also toppled by minnows Afghanistan in the warm-up game.England, on the other hand, started their World Cup campaign on a high after beating South Africa. The tournament hot-favourites had earlier whitewashed Pakistan 4-0 in the ODI series.Playing at the same pitch, where they have racked up some monumental scores in the past, will only add to England’s already high chances of victory.Pitch predictionTrent Bridge is a haunted house for bowlers. It is the same pitch where England had twice broken the record for highest ODI score. At first they amassed 444 for 3 against Pakistan in 2016 and bettered their record later when they smashed 481 for 6 against Australia last year.advertisementIt will be interesting to see if there is another big total lined up at this flat pitch.Match prediction Seeing the destructive form of England lately, there are 80% chances of their win against a fragile Pakistan. Pakistan had shown in the England ODI series, they are capable of putting big totals, but the bowlers should take the responsibility to defend the total if they wish to put an end to their losing streak.Probable Playing XIPakistan: Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim/Shaheen Afridi/Mohammad Hasnain, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad AmirEngland: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid(With inputs from IANS)Also Read | Rest of the world: Sunil Gavaskar trolls England over non-English playersAlso Read | Still not convinced how England can handle home pressure: Vivian RichardsAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Moroccos Election to UNHR Council an International Recognition of Reforms Diplomat

first_imgRabat –  Morocco’s election to the UN Human rights council (for the 2014-2016 mandate) is an international recognition of the importance of reforms adopted by the country, said this Tuesday Morocco’s ambassador and permanent representative to the UN office in Geneva, Omar Hilale.This is a recognition of the international community to the pertinence of the democratic reforms conducted by Morocco and for its positive and efficient role, said the diplomat who was guest to MAP’s forum themed “Morocco’s commitment in human rights.”This is also a defeat for Morocco’s enemies who have been ceaselessly endeavoring to tarnish the Kingdom’s image, he went on. The diplomat went that the invitation extended by Moroccan officials to four UN rapporteurs for human rights to visit Morocco in the 2014-2015 period is further evidence “Morocco’s commitments for human rights.”He added that Morocco’s adherence to the UN special process is part of “a proactive approach on such sensitive issues as torture, arbitrary detentions and violence against women”.Hilale further explained that Morocco’s experience in human rights matters is the fruit of a long process of reforms based on participation and consensus, noting that human rights promotion is an irreversible constitutional commitment.The constitution adopted by referendum in 2011 is “a genuine charter” of human rights, he insisted.last_img read more

Environmentally friendly and tough mine conveyor rollers

first_imgNoise reduction, wear resistance, resistance to heat or cold, energy and weight savings, and strength are advantages reported for RET Rollers. The RET-Roller drum and the bearing case are made of an HDPE material. The HDPE blend used in the RET-Rollers was specially developed to satisfy the high demands of the rollers, including:■It is highly wear resistant■ It does not corrode and stands up well to aggressive environments such as sea water, iron ore, coal and chemicals■ It is non-adhesive even in low and very low temperatures■ It is anti-static and fire retardant■ It has a friction coefficient considerably smaller than that of steel rollers■ The low weight means resistance to movement is less than with heavier materials such as steel.To protect the bearing from contaminants such as dust, sludge, water etc. a polyamide sleeve has been pressed on the stainless steel shaft. This sleeve, the company says, “provides the sealing lips a very good quality running surface and ensures long life . The lip seals are placed in a HDPE sealing housing that is pressed in to the bearing cover.“In changing temperatures, condensation inside the roller can lead to bearing failure. In RET-Rollers the bearing housing provides a very small access from the roller inside to the bearing. For additional protection a single lip seal is placed between the bearing and the bearing housing, ensuring that no moisture is penetrating the bearing.“The typical problems of loosening end caps at higher roller speed has been eliminated on the RET-Rollers by welding the HDPE end cap on the HDPE sleeve. The thorough weld ensures a solid structure, but also closes on further access point to the heart of the roller.“RET-Rollers have a unique way to protect the bearings from impact. The steel pipe inside the HDPE sleeve ends before the bearing housing, limiting the transfer of shocks.” The HDPE material, despite its high wear resistance, is a good dampening material. After the sleeve, there is a very thick bearing housing that is not made of solid material, but that has hollow channels in it. This structure absorbs shocks effectively. Finally, the bearing itself is installed in a sleeve with small holes, providing further shock absorbing properties, but also ensuring good alignment of the bearing.”last_img read more

I had said it, I didn’t hide anything. What makes me sad is that I saw it coming.”“There was a time when I thought I was going to play.
