In the past, City fans have accused Webb of favouring United, although the last time he took charge of one of their games, he sent Brazilian full-back Rafael off when Chelsea won at Old Trafford last May.

first_imgMeanwhile, a similar situation is taking place in Miramar, after an officer there posted an expletive-filled message after the recent police-involved killing of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta.Miramar Sgt. Scott Nix said on social media, “If you, said criminal fights me and takes my taser and then try to use my taser on me … I will blow your (expletive) brains out. I will not apologize. (expletive) you and your family and all these (expletive) politicians and media.”Miramar Police said in a statement, “Our department does not condone behavior that is inconsistent, incompatible, or in conflict with the values established by this agency. We expect all of our employees to operate with the highest level of ethics and integrity.”In addition, a statement from BSO said, “The Broward Sheriff’s Office in no way condones opinions or statements that discredit an individual or reflect poorly on our agency. As a public service agency we must always hold ourselves to the highest standard of professionalism and accountability.”The statement continues, “The sergeant has been temporarily reassigned to administrative duty during an investigation into potential social media/social network policy violations.”Karlin has turned in his BSO identification and his weapon to the department. Nix has been relieved of duty, pending the outcome of an administrative investigation. Two South Florida law enforcement officers are facing investigations by their respective departments, after they allegedly made racist comments on their social media accounts.Comments posted on the page of Sgt. David Karlin, a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy who has been with the agency for 24 years, have placed him on restricted duty.His social media posts claim, “What is privilege? Privilege is wearing $200 sneakers when you’ve never had a job … Privilege is wearing $300 Beats headphones while living on public assistance … Privilege is the ability to go march against and protest against anything that triggers you without worrying about calling out of work.”Another on of his posts says, “I’m sorry but if you are still struggling with slavery I’m still struggling with when the vikings invaded England in the eighth century and enslaved my relatives.”According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Karlin is a jail supervisor.A third post by Darlin  includes a picture of a seagull on the beach, resting on a pair of basketball shoes. The text of the post reads, “Apparently this seagull got his stimulus check.”The Broward Chiefs of Police Association (BCCPA) held a news conference today, showing their solidarity against the in-custody death of George Floyd. Miramar Chief & BCCPA President Dexter Williams announced their pledge of a plan of action to improve law enforcement in Broward. pic.twitter.com/CKSbNsr8eg— Miramar Police (@MiramarPD) June 5, 2020last_img read more

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoThis Saturday, the ninth-ranked Wisconsin volleyball team will travel to Ann Arbor to face 10th-ranked Michigan. The Badgers have opened the season 9-1 and recorded their first Big Ten victory against Illinois Wednesday. The last time the Badgers opened their conference season with only one loss was in 2000 when they reached the reached the NCAA Championship. Their only loss so far this season came against 15th-ranked BYU in August.Playing a ranked team can add a lot of pressure to the game, especially when it is a Big Ten rival. However, the players are not feeling it.”I don’t think there’s pressure because playing in the Big Ten; you are always playing someone who is ranked, and everybody is a tough competitor,” middle blocker and outside hitter Audra Jeffers said. “It’s something we are just used to. Every game is a battle. I don’t think we are going to go in there feeling nervous or under pressure. We are just going to go out there and compete like we always do.”As the Badgers have progressed deeper into the season, the team has begun to come together a little more every week. They have been spending a lot of time on the court, learning the different formations so they can begin to work together as a unit. However, it is not a time for the team to let down their guard and forget what they have been working on during the nonconference season. “This is the time to buckle down and get focused, because this is what we have been waiting for and what we have been training for throughout the preseason,” co-captain Tayor Reineke said. The Wolverines are off to their best start in school history. They are currently 12-0 and are ranked the highest they have ever been. Freshman setter Lexi Zimmerman is averaging 13.63 assists per game.”They have a new setter who is very good,” assistant coach Rod Wilde said. “It’s like having a really good quarterback, you just have more options out there when you have a good setter. She is good at distributing to any of the five hitters that she’s got.”Michigan is also led by senior Katie Brudzinski, who leads the team with an average of 4.42 kills per game. “Brudzinski is one of their top outside hitters,” Wilde said. “It’s her fourth year in the Big Ten, and she has always been ranked high in the conference. She is the heart and soul of that team.”On the Badgers’ side of the net, freshman outside hitter Allison Wack is the player to watch. Against Illinois, she came off the bench to net 13 kills. This season, she has appeared in all 10 matches, averaging 2.5 kills per contest.”Al Wack came and played very, very well against Illinois [Wednesday] night and offered us a step up,” Wilde said. “Any time you can get good bench play, particularly from freshmen, that’s going to be a positive”Among the things the Badgers need to improve, Wilde suggests they need to be more consistent. In the matchup against Illinois, Wisconsin’s attack percentage fluctuated from game to game. In the first two games, their team attack was below .300. But during games 3 and 4, they had a .360 and a .378 team attack percentage. On defense, they allowed the Illini 28 kills, but held them to less than 20 for the rest of the match. Although they haven’t played a home game since Aug. 25, the Badgers do not seem any worse for the wear. Wilde said that it’s nice to get the team away from Madison and away from the distractions of family and friends. He said that the seniors have been able to keep the team focused and prepared for each game. However, this does not mean that they do not miss “The Block Party” at the Field House.”We love the fans here,” Reineke said. “They are like the seventh player on the court. They pump us up so much, and we are definitely looking forward to playing in front of our fans.”last_img read more

first_imgParis, France | AFP |  Established star Sadio Mane and the emerging 16-year-old Ansu Fati both scored as they shared the limelight among Africans in the top European leagues at the weekend.Senegal’s Mane boosted hopes of succeeding Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah as African Footballer of the Year with a brace in a Premier League comeback win over Newcastle United.Guinea-Bissauan Fati, the teenager taking La Liga by storm, notched his second goal in as many matches to set up Barcelona for victory over Valencia.ENGLANDSADIO MANE/MOHAMED SALAH (Liverpool)Mane sparked Liverpool into action against Newcastle once he was switched to the left of the formidable front three. The Magpies were leading at that stage, but once the tactical switch was made shortly before the half hour they were run ragged, largely by the Senegalese. Mane scored twice before the break to turn the tide and maintain his extraordinary record of Liverpool never losing a Premier League home game when he is among the goals, winning 33 and drawing two. Egyptian Salah then scored his fourth goal of the campaign.MOUSSA DJENEPO (Southampton)The young Mali international has quickly settled into the Premier League after a close-season move from Standard Liege. Having opened his account for the Saints against Brighton prior to the international break, the 21-year-old scored the only goal of the game at Sheffield United with a cracking individual goal.PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG (Arsenal)Aubameyang struck twice in quick succession in the first half against Watford to take his season tally to five in as many games. However, the Gabon international’s contribution was not enough for all three points as the Gunners collapsed after the break and had to hang on for a 2-2 draw.SPAINANSU FATI (Barcelona)The teenager from Guinea-Bissau continued the remarkable start to his senior career at Barcelona by scoring inside two minutes on his full debut. Fati went on to assist Frenkie de Jong’s seventh-minute goal as the reigning La Liga champions romped to a 5-2 win over Valencia.ITALYKALIDOU KOULIBALY (Napoli)Senegalese defender Koulibaly put his own-goal howler against Juventus behind him by helping Napoli keep a clean sheet for the first time this season with a 2-0 win over Sampdoria. “We wanted to win without taking goals and to convince on the first try in front of our fans: done,” Koulibaly wrote on Twitter after Napoli had conceded seven goals in their two previous games.KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG (Fiorentina) Ghanaian Boateng came on as a substitute in place of Franck Ribery against champions Juventus. The 32-year-old had a volley off target but Fiorentina held on for a 0-0 and earned their first point this season.GERVINHO (Parma)The Ivorian missed a chance to equalise as Parma fell 3-1 at home to Cagliari. Gervinho shrugged off defenders after an hour but paid for sloppy finishing as Parma fell to their second loss in three games.GERMANYACHRAF HAKIMI (Borussia Dortmund)The young Moroccan right-back sent a pinpoint cross into Paco Alcacer to create Dortmund’s opener in a 4-0 rout of Bayer Leverkusen. Hakimi has made seven assists since joining Dortmund on loan from Real Madrid at the beginning of last season.AMINE HARIT (Schalke)Hakimi’s fellow Moroccan Harit grabbed a brace in a 5-1 win at Paderborn to take his season tally to five goals. He gratefully picked up assists from Jonjoe Kenny and Ahmed Kutucu as Schalke ran through promoted minnows Paderborn in the second half.SALIF SANE (Schalke)Harit’s teammate Sane also played his part, scoring his side’s first goal as they came from behind to triumph convincingly. The Senegalese defender rose above goalkeeper Jannik Huth to nod in the equaliser on 33 minutes.PIERRE KUNDE (Mainz)The Cameroon international was involved in the opening goal as Mainz grabbed a dramatic 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin to pick up their first points of the season. Kunde whipped in a cross to set up Robin Quaison, but Mainz needed an 89th-minute goal from Jeremiah St. Juste to win.FRANCEVICTOR OSIMHEN (Lille)Nigerian youngster Osimhen scored his fifth Ligue 1 goal of the campaign as last season’s runners-up Lille beat Angers 2-1. The 20-year-old, who previously scored doubles in home wins over Saint-Etienne and Nantes, grabbed his goal courtesy of a dreadful error by Angers goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle.KEITA BALDE (Monaco)Senegal striker Balde came off the bench late on against Marseille and gave Monaco hope of snatching an unlikely point with his first goal of the season. But, having led 2-0 early on, Leonardo Jardim’s men lost 4-3. Balde has returned to Monaco for the current campaign after spending last term on loan at Inter Milan.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_img(Visited 36 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 The secret of the archer fish’s powerful spits has been discovered, and it isn’t powerful muscles.The fish that shoots bugs out of the air uses physics, a paper in PLoS ONE declared.  By letting physics amplify the momentum in the drop shot out of the water, the fish achieves six times the wallop its own muscles can attain.  Nature News posted a video of the fish and described how it works:The researchers found that the first section of the water to leave the fish’s mouth was traveling about two meters per second. But as the fish continued to expel water into the jet, the speed increased. This back-end power forced more water and momentum into the “head” of the jet. “As a result, the power that the head of the jet can deliver upon impact increases during shooting,” the authors explained in their paper.Vailati and team found that this is similar to a mechanism used by on-demand inkjet printers.  In a strange symbiosis of biomimetics, printer engineers may be able to improve their designs by studying how the fish accomplishes what they came up with independently.Nature News also quoted the authors’ evolutionary inclinations from their paper:The fish’s strategy is evolutionarily clever. “This advantage would come without the evolutionary cost for the development of highly specialized internal structures dedicated to the storing of mechanical energy,” the authors noted.See also PhysOrg and BBC News.   Source: Vailati A, Zinnato L, Cerbino R (2012) How Archer Fish Achieve a Powerful Impact: Hydrodynamic Instability of a Pulsed Jet in Toxotes jaculatrix. PLoS ONE 7(10): e47867. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0047867.Evolution is not clever.  Evolution does not calculate the cost of development.  Evolution does not design specialized internal structures dedicated to the storing of mechanical energy.  Once again, we see evolution tacked on to a design story like some kind of vestigial organ from the 1800’s.The archer fish was one of the illustrations of design used by early films from Moody Institute of Science.  It remains a good illustration today, in fact, even more so.   There’s much more than muscle involved.  The fish has to correct for distortion at the air-water interface, have a perfect aim, calculate the height, and know the energy required to get the bug to release its strong grip on the twig.  All these things must work together for the fish to eat.  How many archer fish had to die before the right mutations came along?  Get real; get intelligent design.last_img read more
