Buffon apologises to Juventus fans

first_imgJuventus captain Gianluigi Buffon has apologised to the club’s supporters after their 1-0 defeat to title rivals Napoli last weekendThe Bianconeri were handed their second home defeat in the Serie A this season against a Napoli side aiming to win their first Serie A crown since 1990 with the legendary Diego Maradona.At the end of the match at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, some sections of the home crowd criticised the players for a lack of personality on the pitch by chanting “Tirate fuori I coglioni”.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.“It’s important for us to have you here”, Buffon told the fans, as reported on Calcio Mercato.“You were right to come here, if we are stuck in this situation it’s because we did something wrong. We want you to be proud of us, until the end.”“We didn’t stop to greet you against Napoli because we were too angry, we went to talk with our opponents because it is our habit to it, either we win or lose.

County flu deaths increase to 11 less than the 20172018 season

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Two more flu deaths in San Diego County have brought this season’s death toll to 11, county health officials announced today. According to the county’s Health and Human Services Agency, a 74-year-old man died Dec. 31 after contracting influenza B, and a 64-year-old man died Jan. 3 from influenza A complications.The 74-year-old man was vaccinated but the 64-year-old man was not, the county said.Lab-confirmed flu cases in the county total 2,083 through Jan. 5, according to the county’s weekly influenza report. That total represents roughly one-fifth of the 10,335 confirmed casesat this time last flu season. The death toll is lower, too, having reached a total of 91 at this point last season.“It’s not too late in the season to get your flu shot,” said Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer. “Flu activity can last until April or May and the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others around you from influenza.”County health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly advise the annual flu vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, especially those with a heightened risk of serious complications, such as pregnant women, people older than 65 and people with chronic conditions.County residents can get vaccinated at doctors’ offices, retail pharmacies, community clinics and the county’s public health centers. Residents can also call 211 or visit the county’s immunization program website, sdiz.org, for a list of county locations administering free vaccines.

Cardinals Beat Lipscomb 51 in RainFilled Spring Match

first_imgThe game was moved to Trager where the momentum fully swung in Cardinals favor. The Cardinals put immediate pressure on the Bison and the pressure paid off as Jack Hickey dribbled down the left sideline and found Haji Abdikadir, who turned his defender and blasted a shot into the upper 90 in the 72nd minute to take a 2-1 lead.  Story Links The Cardinals added another in the  81st minute when Will Portman collected a ball and passed to Izaiah Jennings. Portman immediately overlapped Jennings, making a 70-yard run to collect the pass and finish to the far post to make the score line 3-1. All three goalkeepers on the roster all played thirty minutes each, combining for seven saves on the night. Both teams started the second half dealing with a heavy downpour and gusting winds. Lipscomb evened the scoring in the 50th minute of play when Malik Shaheed scored on an assist from Louis Robinson. The rain picked up and the referees made a decision to delay the match in the 55th minute. Louisville, Ky. – The University of Louisville men’s soccer improved their spring record to 2-1 with a strong 5-1 performance over Lipscomb University.  The Cardinals got out to an early 1-0 lead on Elijah Amo’s goal in the 11th minute of play. The goal was the junior’s second goal of the spring season. The Cardinals have outscored collegiate teams 9-2 in spring play.  Head coach John Michael Hayden improves to 2-1 in his first spring season at the helm.   The Cardinals found some possession as the game wore on and came close to adding a second goal in the 25th minute as Amo and Cherif Dieye combined to force a save by the Lipscomb keeper. Both teams continued to battle each other, and the weather, as the first half finished with a score of 1-0 Louisville advantage. The high pressure from the Cardinals paid dividends again when Kino Ryosuke picked up a 50-50 ball and beat two Lipscomb defenders, passing to Jennings who found the back of the net in the 86th minute, making the score 4-1. The Cardinals continued to press and found their fifth goal of the match in the 89th minute when senior Cody Cochran picked out Jennings’ run in behind. Jennings controlled the ball, dribbled to the end line, and played a ball across the box to Ryosuke, who calmly played the ball into the corner of the goal. The Cardinals will travel to Lindsey Wilson for their lone away trip of the spring season on Friday, April 5th, and will host their final spring game on April 19th when Indiana University visits Lynn Stadium. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Interruptible 3D printing method wins Gehry prize w Video

first_img Robot arm at MIT will weave its own web (w/ Video) The prize is given to those who can demonstrate exceptional thesis projects. The couple won for their method of 3-D printing that allows the user to make changes to the design in progress.In 3-D printing an object is created by laying down successive layers of material that can render finished objects.3-D Printers make objects in three dimensions, layer by layer, which may be only microns thick. The model that is destined for replication has usually been fully resolved. The Phantom Geometry method allows the user, in contrast, to print outside the specifications of a given 3-D mode. Fundamentally the Phantom Geometry method is designed to create a physical model of streaming information. Using advanced robotic arms, the von Hasseln team proceeded to manipulate the model as it was being printed. According to their idea, as a printed product emerges, the designer can make alternations to the design in-progress, and in so doing change the downstream architecture of the printed product.Their system has a UV light projector, a special photo-sensitive resin, and controlled robotic arms from SCI-Arc’s Robot House. One robotic arm supports a projector at a stable height, while a second holds a vat of resin. 
The second arm moves the vat into the projector’s light beam of light. The designer tells the computer where and when to expose that vat to the projector’s rays. The designer is free to interrupt the process and change the model while it is being printed. As a result, one can work with a fabrication system that relies on real-time feed-back and feed-forward mechanisms, they said, and is therefore “interruptible and corruptible at any time.”As they explain in their own words, “The system uses UV light from a modified DLP projector to continuously and selectively cure photo initiated resin within a shallow vat system we developed for the project. The cured part is simultaneously and continually pulled away from the vat, allowing un-cured resin to flood in beneath it to be subsequently cured. The result is the material reification of streaming data that emerges along the motion path of the Staubli robot maneuvering the vat/projector apparatus.”SCI-Arc is an independent architecture school. The school’s Robot House is a cross between studio and shop, academy and industry, utilized as a research space for experimentation. Students have access to a multi-robot platform that includes six Stäubli robots, each with a full sphere of motion, operating in one flexible configuration, or in what the school calls a multi-robot work cell.

Liz and Kyle von Hasseln are winners of the inaugural Gehry Prize from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (Sci-Arc) in Los Angeles. The prize is named after architect Frank Gehry, who is known around the world for his architectural wonders including the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain; the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles; and the Dancing House in Prague.
