Mens hockey looks to bounce back against Bowling Green

OSU players celebrate after the Buckeyes first goal of the game against Miami (Ohio) Oct. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 6-2.Credit: Matthew Homan / Lantern photographerComing off the wrong side of a two-game sweep at the hands of Miami (Ohio) this weekend, the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team is looking to bounce back as it travels to Bowling Green State University for a one-game bout.Despite giving up a combined 12 goals in their two losses against the Redhawks in coach Steve Rohlik’s first series at the helm of the team, the Buckeyes (0-2-0) are optimistic about their matchup with the Falcons (0-1-1).Junior forward Max McCormick said Bowling Green and OSU are “hard-nosed teams,” so the game is going to be a battle.“We didn’t let (being swept by Miami) get us down,” McCormick said. “We’re getting better every day and that’s our mindset, so we’re staying positive and we’re going into Bowling Green to get a win.”Despite the positive attitude, senior forward Alex Szczechura said playing away from Columbus will pose a challenge the team must overcome.“They’ve always been a hardworking team,” Szczechura said. “In their home rink, they’re a tough team to play. So coming into (Tuesday’s) game, we really just want to work hard and keep things simple, keep battling on the ice.”McCormick noted that penalties and maintaining possession were two issues the Buckeyes faced against Miami, among other things.“We really need to take care of the puck,” he said. “We worked on some things in the (defensive zone) and the neutral zone this week in practice and we brushed up on some things in the power play.”OSU is 12-1-3 against the Falcons in the teams’ last 16 meetings.The Buckeyes are slated to take on the Falcons Tuesday in Bowling Green, Ohio with the puck set to drop at 7:07 p.m. read more

Meghan Markle celebrate her first Mothers Day by sharing cute picture of

first_imgMoreover, Meghan Markle paid tribute to Archie’s grandmother, Princess Diana in her Instagram post. In her Instagram caption, The Duchess of Sussex wrote the following:”Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered. We honor and celebrate each and every one of you,” Meghan wrote. “Today is Mother’s Day in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Japan, and several countries across Europe. This is the first Mother’s Day for The Duchess of Sussex. Quote from ‘lands’: my mother was my first country; the first place I ever lived.”Following the birth of Archie, the 34-year-old Prince Harry told the media that they both are absolutely thrilled and grateful for all the love and support they have received from everybody out there. Even Meghan shared Harry’s sentiment and after introducing Archie to the world, she gushed “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing, I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.” Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesThis is Meghan Markle’s first Mother’s Day and she celebrated the event by sharing some never been seen before pictures of her son, Archie.In the UK the Mother’s Day already took place on March 22 — almost two months before Meghan Markle gave birth to Archie — but she welcomed her first child just in time to celebrate the big day in the United States of America. On such a special occasion, the 37-year-old Meghan and Prince Harry shared a sweet picture of their son Archie on Instagram.In the latest upload, we can see Archie’s adorable feet which are being pampered by his proud mother. The image was taken at their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor.

Modi govt mulls extra cess on petrol and diesel vehicles in a

first_imgBuyers of petrol and diesel vehicles may have to pay an extra green cess as the government is planning to tweak its electric and hybrid vehicles promotion strategy.The government plans to revamp the Fame-India (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric and Hybrid Vehicle) scheme to shift the focus away from subsidies, according to reports.The scheme under which the government has disbursed Rs 305 crore to about 2.6 lakh vehicles is set to end on March 31, 2019. The government launched it on April 1, 2015, initially for two years. It extended the scheme four times, each time by six months, after the initial period ended on March 31, 2017.The scheme has so far helped save 3.75-crore litres of fuel preventing the release of 9.37-crore kg of greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.Though the government earlier indicated it would launch Fame-2 once the current period of extension end on March 31, 2019, it is yet to release the details. Instead, it has been pushing the production of lithium-ion batteries that are necessary for electric vehicles.The new approach will be to use the funds raised from the green cess to provide infrastructural incentives to producers of electric and hybrid vehicles, news reports say. The calculation is that increasing cost of owning petroleum-fuelled vehicles will encourage prospective owners to look at electric and hybrid options.This will help the authorities reduce the direct subsidy on electric and hybrid vehicles, including two and three-wheelers, under the Fame scheme.”Instead of increasing the finance department’s burden of providing subsidies to electric vehicle buyers through a timeless scheme of incentives, the government is actively considering putting a green tax on all petrol and diesel cars,” MoneyControl website reported quoting a source.The subsidies that the government pays range from Rs 7,500 on low-power electric scooters to Rs 61 lakh on hybrid buses and nearly Rs 1 crore on fully electric buses.The sales of electric vehicles have begun to pick up only from mid-2017. Automakers have been reluctant to launch bigger cars and SUV powered by an electric motor because of the high initial cost that might deter buyers.”An additional Rs2,000 or Rs2,500 on a car or Rs300 on a two-wheeler will not put any significant burden on the buyers, but will generate a huge corpus for the government,” the source said.last_img read more

Pakistan detains militant suspects after Kashmir attack

first_imgKashmiri villagers look on a fire razes a house following a deadly gun battle between militants and Indian government forces in Tral area of Pulwama district, south of Srinagar, on 5 March, 2019. Photo: AFPPakistan has detained dozens of alleged militants after a suicide attack in Indian-held Kashmir last month which sent tensions between the nuclear-armed foes soaring, its interior minister said Tuesday.Among those detained in Islamabad’s latest crackdown on banned groups was Abdul Rauf — who a security source told AFP is a younger brother of Masood Azhar — the leader of Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) that claimed responsibility for the February 14 attack.Rauf had been named in a dossier of evidence in that attack given to Pakistan by India, the interior ministry said.”We have launched a crackdown against proscribed organisations and have taken 44 individuals into custody, including Mufti Abdul Rauf and Hammad Azhar,” state minister for the interior Shehryar Afridi told reporters in Islamabad.He did not give any further names, clarify what groups those detained allegedly belonged to, or say if they would face charges.The 14 February attack killed 40 Indian paramilitaries and spurred tit-for-tat air raids between India and Pakistan across the highly militarised Line of Control, the de facto border in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.Both sides claimed they had shot each other’s warplanes down, igniting fears of an all-out conflict as world powers pleaded for restraint.Pakistan captured one Indian pilot, releasing him on Friday in a bid to pull both countries back from the brink, though tensions remain high.Rauf is a little-known younger brother of Masood Azhar, the security source said. He added that “Hammad Azhar” was an alias, but did not say who for.Indian officials were sceptical of the detentions Tuesday. “We have seen Pakistan make arrests before, and then the people are released,” an Indian government source told AFP.India, along with the US, has pressured Pakistan to take action against militancy.”If they still do not mend their ways, We have told them what will happen,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi told an election rally in central India Tuesday.Afridi said Pakistan was “not taking this action under pressure from anyone”. Islamabad has vehemently denied involvement in militant attacks, and said there are no safe havens left for terror groups on its territory.JeM leader Masood Azhar remains in Pakistan, foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told CNN last week, adding that he was “very unwell” and could not leave his house.last_img read more

S. Y. Wong et al. Mimosa Origami: A nanostructure-enabled directional self-organization regime of materials, Science Advances (2016). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1600417AbstractOne of the innate fundamentals of living systems is their ability to respond toward distinct stimuli by various self-organization behaviors. Despite extensive progress, the engineering of spontaneous motion in man-made inorganic materials still lacks the directionality and scale observed in nature. We report the directional self-organization of soft materials into three-dimensional geometries by the rapid propagation of a folding stimulus along a predetermined path. We engineer a unique Janus bilayer architecture with superior chemical and mechanical properties that enables the efficient transformation of surface energy into directional kinetic and elastic energies. This Janus bilayer can respond to pinpoint water stimuli by a rapid, several-centimeters-long self-assembly that is reminiscent of the Mimosa pudica’s leaflet folding. The Janus bilayers also shuttle water at flow rates up to two orders of magnitude higher than traditional wicking-based devices, reaching velocities of 8 cm/s and flow rates of 4.7 μl/s. This self-organization regime enables the ease of fabricating curved, bent, and split flexible channels with lengths greater than 10 cm, demonstrating immense potential for microfluidics, biosensors, and water purification applications.Press release Citation: A man-made material that mimics the curling of the mimosa leaflet (2016, June 27) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-06-man-made-material-mimics-mimosa-leaflet.html Play Mimosa Origami assembly of the Janus bilayer strips performing double right-angle turns on a superhydrophobic PS-PDMS substrate.

Credit: Wong et al. Sci. Adv. 2016; 2 : e1600417 Journal information: Science Advances As the researchers note, nature is filled with examples of living systems that react to stimuli by engaging in self-organization behaviors. One such example is the fern-like mimosa plant, it has multiple leaflets along individual twigs that are each independently sensitive to touch—such stimuli (such as children over the generations having some fun with their friends) causes the leaflet to curl up into a hollow tube shape resembling a very small straw. Developing materials with similar characteristics is highly desirable because it allows for creating unique products, such as very low power sensors.In this new effort, the researchers created the new material by fashioning stacks of multi-function layers of a Janus nanoparticle based material (offering opposite hydrophilic-hydrophobic properties) to a bottom layer made of polyvinyl chloride microfibers. The result was a thin length of flat white material with a larger round formation at one end. When a liquid was dropped onto the round formation, the liquid was pushed, through self-action, by the material all the way to the other end—as it was pushed, the material curled from one end to the other, resulting in what looked like an ordinary straw. The researchers report that the action was fast, taking just 33 milliseconds to get started. They note also that the self-action was reversible as well—as the material dried, it flattened.

More thunderstorms likely across North Staffordshire as weather warning issued

first_imgDad slams ‘disgusting’ hospital window Driver named following fatal collision Get the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailMore thunderstorms are expected across North Staffordshire and South Cheshire later this week as the Met Office issued a new Yellow Weather Warning. Residents across Stoke-on-Trent and surrounding areas were woken up in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday July 24) following an impressive display of lightning across a vast swathe of the country that followed a long hot day as a heatwave continues across the UK. The storm brought down branches and a number of trees across North Staffordshire and South Cheshire – with the heavy rainfall that accompanied it lifting a number of drain covers. Shortly before 11am today the Met Office confirmed they had put a new Yellow Weather Warning for thunderstorms in place for much of England – including Stoke-on-Trent, elsewhere in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire. Read MoreDriver in critical condition after accident on A520 Punter found hiding in bushes Read MoreTop stories on StokeonTrentLive Massive thunderstorms erupted across Staffordshire in the early hours of the morning (Image: Judie Tingle) Police search for missing woman What is a Met Office Weather Warning?The Met Office issue weather warnings when there is a risk of weather causing damage, disruption or danger to life. Generally warnings will be issued for heavy rain, wind, ice or snow. They come in three categories. Yellow: The lowest of the three. Yellow means you should plan ahead about potential disruption to travel and other day-to-day activities. These are the most common. Amber: A step up from Yellow, an Amber warning means there is an increased risk of disruption/danger to life and property. Red: These are only issued when ‘extreme weather’ is expected. When one is issued the Met Office advise immediate action is taken to keep yourself and others safe as widespread damage, disruption and risk to life is likely. Red warnings are extremely rare anywhere in the UK and almost unknown in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire.   The warning is in force from 3pm tomorrow (Thursday July 25) until 4am on Friday (July 26). The latest warning states:  “Following a hot day (in places exceptionally so), scattered thunderstorms are likely to break out from late afternoon onwards. While some areas, particularly in the south of the warning area may well avoid the storms, where they do occur they could produce 20-30 mm of rain in less than an hour, along with frequent lightning, hail and gusty winds. “Perhaps the main focus will be later in the evening and into the first part of the night across northern England and southern and eastern parts of Scotland, where storms could be more widespread and locally intense.” Follow StokeonTrentLive Download our app  – You can download our free app for iPhone and iPad from Apple’s App Store , or get the Android version from Google Play .  Follow StokeonTrentLive on Facebook – Like our Facebook page to get the latest news in your feed and join in the lively discussions in the comments.

Russian mobile operator Megafon has reportedly beg

first_imgRussian mobile operator Megafon has reportedly begun testing LTE Broadcast technology from Huawei. According to local trade news site ComNews, Megafon is testing LTE Broadcast technology, centred on the eMBMS enhanced multicast standard, in Moscow using capacity in the 2.6GHz range.According to the report, Megafon is testing the broadcast of multiplexed channels rather than individual streams. The company launched an LTE-A network in Moscow earlier this year.Huawei has been developing LTE Broadcast technology for some time. It tested the technology with Philippines operator Smart Communications using 2.1GHz spectrum last year and has also been previously linked with the BBC’s plans for LTE services.Late last year Huawei teamed up with chipmaker Sequans Communications to conduct interoperability tests of Huawei’s LTE equipment and end user devices based on Sequans’ eMBMS-capable chips.last_img read more
