Everybody knows.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next ‘City-killer’: Asteroid the size of the Great Pyramid may hit Earth in 2022, says NASA Each of the photos captured a triumphant moment for Zlatan and the Galaxy during the first four editions of El Tráfico, the increasingly outstanding rivalry series between Major League Soccer’s two Los Angeles clubs. LAFC’s fans have the best team in the league this season, but it has never beaten the Galaxy — and those fans will have to walk past these trolling provocations around their home ground before the latest edition of the LA derby Sunday night.“I thought it was funny,” Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget said after he saw the billboards on social media. “That stuff gets us going. It’s just good for the city, man. Even though they’re probably a little bitter about it.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsSPORTSPH women’s football team not spared from SEA Games hotel woesSPORTSThailand claims not enough Thai food, drinks for players at hotelA rivalry that didn’t exist 18 months ago has grown into one of the highest-profile matchups in the league, drawing rowdy crowds and attracting international attention for the intensity and quality of the first four games.The Galaxy are the only five-time champions in MLS history, while their crosstown foes are a model expansion franchise with a lavish new stadium near downtown LA. Multicultural Los Angeles has loved and embraced soccer for decades, but having two successful professional franchises has amplified that passion, turning each of these rivalry games into something special. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. ‘Ghost guns’ are untraceable, easy to make, more prevalent ‘I don’t want no sympathy:’ Football helps heal ravaged town “Ever since the first game, this rivalry has grown so organically,” Lletget said. “You’ll see on Sunday, the intensity is as if you’re in a derby in Europe. It’s pretty crazy.”Although the Galaxy (13-11-2) are in third place in the Western Conference, they’re a whopping 20 points behind LAFC (19-3-4), which is running away with MLS’ best record during a spectacular second season.But LAFC is 0-2-2 against its biggest rivals, making this final regular-season meeting even more urgent for the newcomers in black and gold.“It’s the derby,” LAFC coach Bob Bradley said. “It means more. So far, with all the things we’ve done, we haven’t beat them.”Thrilling finishes, spectacular goals and bad-tempered play have been in abundance ever since this rivalry began with Zlatan’s electrifying two-goal MLS debut during the Galaxy’s comeback victory in March 2018.ADVERTISEMENT Ibrahimovic and Vela have scored a whopping six goals apiece in the four El Tráfico games, doing everything that’s expected from arguably the league’s two best players. Their last meeting was dominated by the superstars, with Ibrahimovic’s hat trick besting Vela’s brace in a 3-2 victory for the Galaxy on July 19.“When you play against the other team of the city, you always want to do your best,” said Vela, who already has 26 goals and 15 assists in a historically prolific season. “You want to win. You want to show you are better than the other team of the city, and it’s a good chance to show how good we are this season. I hope we can finally get the three points.”The rivalry is new, but the fan bases’ animus is older.Galaxy supporters look down at LAFC for its brief history and an empty trophy case, but also because LAFC’s fan base includes many hard-core supporters who switched allegiances from Chivas USA, which dissolved in 2014 after a dismal decade sharing the Galaxy’s stadium.But LAFC fans love to point out the Galaxy technically aren’t from Los Angeles, and never have been. They’ve been based in Carson, a suburb due south of downtown LA, since 2003 after spending their first nine years of existence at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.“The intensity comes by itself, because it’s two teams from the same city,” Ibrahimovic said. “Rivals. I think it comes automatic, the intensity of this game.”Banc of California Stadium will be intense from the moment LAFC’s 3252 supporters union starts rocking the North End a couple of hours before kickoff. Ticket prices on the secondary market for Sunday’s game skyrocketed in recent days, with few single seats under $200 and the high-end tickets topping $1,500.Along with a national television broadcast, fans at home can watch a streaming comedic commentary program synced to the match by Funny or Die, the comedy website co-founded by LAFC minority owner Will Ferrell.What’s more, both sides of this derby are getting serious reinforcements before this edition.Sunday’s game will be the first El Tráfico for Cristian Pavón, the speedy Argentine forward who arrived earlier this month and immediately took a major role in the Galaxy’s attack. It could also mark the LAFC debut of Brian Rodríguez, the promising Uruguayan designated player whose paperwork cleared just in time to make him available to Bradley this weekend. What a relief!

We anticipate that there will be no or very few PPO plans on the Exchange in 2015.The truth is that the ACA completely changed the healthcare landscape. There are some great things about that and some new challenges: out-of-network coverage (a basic plan feature of PPOs) is definitely one. We’re working to make sure our members get the best coverage possible — we’re constantly in conversations with regulators and policymakers to bring up the challenges our members are facing. This out-of-network issue is definitely one we’re looking at closely.On HMOs, out-of-network coverage is limited to emergencies. However, HMOs offer additional protections for emergency room visits and have high standards for quality of care. And PPO plans tend to be significantly more expensive than HMO plans.If you have any questions about Empire’s network, go here. We can help you find a doctor in the new network that meets your needs if your current doctor is not in the new network.Why are you making this change?Our main concern has always been the well-being of our members. When we looked at the future of our plans in the new healthcare reform landscape, we quickly realized we could offer benefits and coverage at better value to freelancers by partnering with an insurance carrier with size and scale like Empire. We estimate that rates would be 14% higher had we not formed this partnership.Why did you choose Empire?Freelancers Union spent months looking for the right partner who would work with us to help offer health plans for our members at the best possible value. We’ve utilized Empire’s highly-rated network of doctors for the past 6 years, and during that time they’ve shown a commitment to working with us to meet the needs of freelancers. We’re confident they’ll continue to be great partners as we work together to make sure you and every other freelancer can get high quality, affordable healthcare.How can I contact you?Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to get the answers you’re looking for.Email is the easiest and fastest way to get in touch: membership@freelancersunion.org.Or you can call us at 800-856-9981.

(Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty Images)Over the weekend, Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts created a media firestorm when he commented on Alabama’s quarterback race publicly for the first time. Hurts was benched in the title game in favor of freshman phenom Tua Tagovailoa.Since then, a debate has raged on as to who will be the starting quarterback for the Tide during the 2018 season. On Saturday, Hurts revealed the Alabama coaching staff hasn’t spoken with him regarding the QB battle.“No one came up to me the whole spring, coaches included, no one asked me how I felt,” Hurts said. “No one asked me what was on my mind. No one asked me how I felt about the things that were going on. Nobody asked me what my future held.”It was shocking to hear an Alabama player give such candid comments. Alabama’s players, namely its stars, have remained out of the media spotlight in terms of comments such as these.On Wednesday, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban was asked about Hurts’ comments.Saban on Jalen Hurts’ comments: “Every player has a right to express what he thinks and he feels. … This is probably a lot more important to people outside our organization than it is on the inside.”— Charlie Potter (@Charlie_Potter) August 8, 2018Once again Saban downplays the quarterback battle brewing at Alabama.

This issue has been pending for years and years. Why should we not grant time,” the bench also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer told the counsel appearing for the parties. The counsel appearing for both the Hindu and Muslim parties expressed confidence over the ongoing mediation proceedings and said they are fully cooperating with the process.

We are inclined to grant time till August 15,” the bench said. One of the advocates appearing in the matter said the apex court had earlier given eight weeks time to the panel of mediators and now nine weeks have gone by. “We had given eight weeks and the report has come. We are not inclined to tell you what is there in the report of the committee,” the bench said. One of the counsel told the bench that there are around 13,990 pages of documents in vernacular languages and said some wrong translations have been made which would be a problem. “Objections, if any, on the translation may be placed on the record by written note by June 30,” the bench said, adding, “Nobody will come in the way of mediation”. The top court had fixed the seat for mediation process in Faizabad of Uttar Pradesh, around 7 km from Ayodhya, and said adequate arrangements including the venue of the mediation, place of stay of the mediators, their security, travel should be forthwith arranged by the state government so that proceedings could commence immediately. It had also directed that the mediation proceedings be held in-camera as per norms applicable to conduct mediation proceedings. Fourteen appeals have been filed in the apex court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla. On December 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid, constructed at the disputed site in the 16th century by Shia Muslim Mir Baqi, was demolished.last_img read more

We learned a long time ago not to underestimate her, no matter the competition.2Maybe all those higher-ranked players are just so afraid of Serena that they figured they’d hurry up and lose before facing her. Without the upsets, it’s very possible that she would have made it anyway — especially since, during the course of the tournament, Williams has notably raised her game, particularly on her serve.She struggled some in her first-round win over Arantxa Rus, who ranks just 105th in the world: Williams got 58 percent of her first serves in — winning 76 percent of those points. But by her Tuesday quarterfinal against world No. 52 Camila Giorgi, Williams’s serve was back to form: She got in 71 percent of her first serves and won 81 percent of those points. And in Thursday’s semifinal, Williams won a whopping 87 percent of her first-serve points against world No. 13 Goerges.It certainly hasn’t hurt that Williams’s serve speed has also steadily crept up since the start of the tournament. In her opening match, her first serves were averaging 103 mph. On Thursday, her first serve averaged 107 mph — and her fastest serve topped out at 119 mph. At the same time, Serena’s unforced errors have plummeted. She opened Wimbledon with 29 errors against Rus, but she committed only nine in her three sets against Giorgi — and just seven in two sets against Goerges.Now Williams is on the verge of making even more history, in perhaps her most impressive comeback of all. All it took was a little luck of the draw, some sharper ball-striking and a ton of perseverance to come back from a year spent wrestling with bigger concerns than tennis and put herself on the path to a potentially triumphant return in her favorite grand-slam stomping grounds. The last time we saw Serena Williams in a grand slam final, she was beating her sister Venus for the Australian Open crown in January 2017. A lot has happened to Serena over the nearly 18 months since, but despite all the challenges, she’s back in another final — this time with a chance to tie Margaret Court for the most slam titles of any tennis player in history.Williams’s latest remarkable comeback (and there have been quite a few) only reaffirms for the umpteenth time that she belongs on the short list of history’s greatest athletes. But this time around, she got a little help.A rash of upsets cleared out nearly every top contender in Williams’s path at the All England Club: By the third round, the list of upset victims included top seed Simona Halep, defending champ Garbiñe Muguruza, second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki, U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens, two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova and Serena’s older sister Venus, a five-time Wimbledon champ. As a result, Williams will end up facing only two seeded opponents all tournament long: No. 13 Julia Goerges in the semifinals and No. 11 Angelique Kerber in the final. In her 23 slam victories so far, the only time she faced so few seeded opponents was the 2002 French Open — and even then, the two seeded players she had to beat were her second-seeded sister and the No. 1 seed, Jennifer Capriati.We can roughly quantify the difficulty of Serena’s path in each of her major wins (plus this potential one in London) by assigning point values to her opponents based on their seeds: Since 32 players are seeded for each grand slam,1This has been the case since Wimbledon in 2001. For tournaments before that, when only 16 players were seeded, we used the actual seeds and filled out the remainder of the top 32 using the pre-tournament world rankings. the No. 1 seed is worth 32 points, No. 2 is worth 31, and so forth until we reach the 32nd seed (worth 1 point); unseeded players are worth 0 points. Adding up the point values of all her opponents in a tournament gives us a sense of how stiff Serena’s competition was on the way to each of her major wins, and this year’s Wimbledon will have easily been her easiest path to a title so far, assuming she prevails over Kerber (she’s about a 1-to-2 betting favorite in Las Vegas): 2003Aus.

GEA Separation celebrates 125year anniversary and looks forward to a digital future

first_imgProcess technology company GEA Separation is celebrating its 125th anniversary this week by reflecting on its history.“It was the year of inventions that are still indispensable today, such as the diesel engine by Rudolf Diesel and the zipper by Whitcomb Judso,” GEA says, reflecting on the year of its birth, 1893.“At the same time, the businessman Franz Ramesohl and the cabinetmaker Franz Schmidt in Oelde, Westphalia, proved their innovative strength, creativity and stamina. They opened a workshop on September 1, 1893, and produced a hand-operated milk centrifuge with the model name ‘Westfalia’.“Ramesohl & Schmidt oHG had three locksmiths and two turners 125 years ago. They produced the hand-operated milk centrifuges with the simplest but effective equipment. Entrepreneurial skills, craftsmanship and technical expertise coupled with a love for innovation formed the basis for the following 125 years.“The roots of the company developed into today’s GEA site, the most modern separator plant in the world. The products “made in Oelde” are supplied all over the world. The export quota is currently over 80%. GEA’s expertise now encompasses over 3,500 different processes and 2,500 products for various industries ranging from food and beverage, marine, oil and gas to power, chemical, pharmaceutical and environmental technology.”Regionally rooted, globally activeToday, Oelde is GEA’s largest single site worldwide with a production area of around 37,000 m². Around 1,900 employees, 180 of whom are trainees, are currently working in the areas of design, production and administration. GEA invested heavily in the site in 2013.Steffen Bersch, member of the GEA Executive Board, who worked for many years in Oelde himself, said: “We had and still have the clear ambition not simply to swim in the global competition, but to determine it by increasing efficiency.”For example, the new building in Oelde, which was built in 2013, was essentially based on the idea of sustainability: its own combined heat and power plant with an electrical output of 1.2 MW reduces the CO2 footprint and generates enough electricity to supply more than 2,000 average households.The new separator production enables GEA to optimise processes throughout the entire production process, according to the company.“The use of well-trained and committed employees in conjunction with modern production machines and technologies has led to significantly reduced throughput times in the production of the separators and plants, most of which are customised to the customer’s needs, while maintaining above-average product quality,” GEA said.The company’s own Process Test Centee (PTC), which opened in 2014 and provides extensive specialist support for customers’ investment projects, enables even greater customer orientation; starting with the specification of product properties through the determination and design of machine types to pilot tests at GEA and on site at the customer’s premises.In cooperation with the customer, GEA Product Managers and GEA Process Development, the PTC also develops and tests completely new processes. The PTC also underscores GEA’s innovative strength as a leading international technology group, GEA says. More than 11,000 tests and process developments as well as more than 18,000 laboratory product analyses have been carried out to date. This knowhow is compiled in a database supplemented and updated every year by around 500 new product tests and over 150 process developments.In order to reliably ensure maximum customer satisfaction and continuous machine availability during operation, the supply of spare parts is coordinated centrally from Oelde and in cooperation with renowned logistics companies via so-called hubs.These spare parts centres are currently located in Cologne, Germany (since 2011), Singapore (since 2014) and Naperville, US (since 2017). At the European Parts Logistics Center (EPLC) in Cologne, around 21,000 different articles – from 5 mm diameter sealing rings to machine parts weighing several hundred kilograms – can be retrieved in the shortest possible time; on average, 250 shipments are handled daily.Technology from Oelde all over the world“Being successful for 125 years also means rethinking proven product and process solutions and pushing the boundaries to set new standards through new and further developments. In most cases it is applications ‘behind the scenes’, ie not visible at first glance, in which GEA technologies are installed. But these are not infrequently spectacular,” the company says.An example is the The Palm in Dubai. The artificial islands in the shape of a palm tree, visible even from outer space, are built on – and thus produce wastewater. They are cleaned in an underground sewage treatment plant with GEA decanters. The plant has a capacity of up to 15 m³/h.Another example is found in the cruise ship industry. GEA separators are used here for heavy oil treatment as well as for treating bilge water, an oil-water mixture. Simple ‘discharging’ into the sea is strictly prohibited – so solutions must be found, and GEA is developing them, it says.Bersch says: “All these examples demonstrate our innovative strength and the commitment of the entire GEA team. I am convinced that our will to constantly develop and improve ourselves and our feeling for our customers will continue to make us successful.”GEA has innovative service concepts covering the complete life cycle of the machine and plant, such as monitoring, asset management, consulting and performance optimisation for the customer. Continuous innovation and proximity to the customer through the global network and competence centres such as Oelde are further advantages.GEA is already well positioned, says Bersch, however, further major efforts are needed to stay at the top of the world league. And, this is where digitalisation comes in.Tobias Brinke, Head of Product Group Management Separation, said: “Only by using digital solutions and technologies is it possible to create sustainable and future-oriented products and structures to increase efficiency.”According to Brinke, GEA is already in the middle of a digital journey to continue playing at the top of the world league in the future. GEA therefore fills the term ‘digitisation’ with new life every day.“The continuously and ever faster progressing digitisation changes customers, markets and last but not least GEA. Finding the right answers with innovative digital products and services is crucial for tomorrow’s competitive advantage,” says Brinke. GEA sees digitisation, above all, as an opportunity and a pioneer for new growth and development potential, both in the new machine sector and with regard to the growing range of service solutions.A current example from the service sector is GEA PerformancePlus, which includes service packages that go far beyond traditional maintenance and are an ideal complement to an industry 4.0 strategy, according to the company.“This uncovers optimisation potentials that enable sustainable plant operation. Modern technologies for condition monitoring combined with the knowhow of GEA employees provide the customer with meaningful condition analyses and information for decision making with regard to possible process optimisations – with the aim of permanent availability and maximum productivity. At the same time, changed production requirements can be better assessed and orders can be scheduled in an economically optimal manner,” the company says.“Strengthened by 125 years of success, GEA Separation continues to follow in the footsteps of digital transformation – and so this anniversary not only marks a milestone in the company’s history. At the same time, it is an incentive to push ahead with innovations and continue to improve customer processes and, not least, people’s lives in the long term – in other words, “engineering for a better world”.”last_img read more

Female vocalist trio, Sionna, will be featured at the festival. Source: Sionna Singers WebsiteAs for the entrance fee to the events… all events are either free or heavily subsidised. The festival is based firmly on ideas of democracy and easy access (although some events will be ticketed due to venue capacity). One of the primary goals of the festival is to stimulate interest and a lively public celebration of all things Gothic just before Hallowe’en.Gothic entertainment The Twilight phenomenon has especially been explosive in Young Adult fiction, film and TV dealing with vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghosts. This encroachment of the gothic into mainstream culture has caused an upsurge in interest in themes of otherness, darkness and the monstrous. The festival welcomes this chance to engage the public further in exploration of the gothic across different media.So if you’re a Goth, a ‘Twi-hard’, or just someone who wants to release their inner monster you will definitely want to go down to Limerick later this autumn.Tracy Fahey is Head of Department in Fine Art and Head of Centre of Postgraduate Studies at Limerick School of Art and Design. Tracy has delivered numerous papers around the world and has published articles on the Gothic, fine art and design practice. Some of her creative short stories are Impossible Spaces, Hauntings, Girl at the End of the World, Drag Noir, and Darkest Minds.For more information on Locating the Gothic visit the website or Facebook page.Read: ‘Coffin bed’ has hilariously mixed Amazon reviewsHeritage Ireland: Who is this man with the frightfully fancy tomb? During October 22nd -25th, Limerick City will be the home of the Locating the Gothic festival and conference – featuring everything from writing workshops to monster making, in one of Ireland’s spookiest cities, ‘Locating the Gothic’ will surely be a highlight on this year’s autumn calendar.WITH THIS CONFERENCE and festival, we wanted to take the idea of ‘the gothic’ through academic conference discussions out into the wider arena of Limerick City, tapping into the native tradition of storytelling and folklore and the rich history of literature and art.Myself and my ‘partner in crime’ Maria Beville met at the Studies in Gothic Fiction conference in San Diego back in 2012. Maria’s background is in literature and film, and mine in fine art theory, so together we bring an interdisciplinary approach to our passion for the Gothic. We both live and work in Limerick, where Maria lectures in English Literature at Mary Immaculate College and I run the Department of Fine Art at Limerick School of Art and Design. We were fascinated by the dark history and rich culture of the city, which lends itself perfectly to staging Ireland’s first large Gothic conference and festival.
