first_imgWIGAN’S first half performance was far too good for Saints as they went down 32-10 at the Stobart Stadium on Friday.Their closest rivals were better in attack and defence and took their chances with aplomb to lead 20-0 at the break.Errors from kicks led to two of Wigan’s three tries whilst Liam Mossop’s opener was far too simple.In attack, Royce Simmons’ men couldn’t find a way through a Warriors’ defence that were all over his side and quelled any chance of fast play the balls.In the second half, Brett Finch cruised over the line before Saints finally broke through with Tony Puletua.Tommy Makinson then capped off a good performance with a try from Lee Gaskell’s chip.But that’s about as good as it got for Saints – Jeff Lima adding another for the Warriors to leave Saints with a lot to think about.Saints welcomed back Shaun Magennis, Matty Ashurst and Francis Meli into the 17 with Josh Perry missing out with a hamstring injury.Warriors called on Sam Tomkins and George Carmont; who didn’t double up last week after their Origin Commitments.Andy Coley also returned from injury.Wigan were first on the attack with a high ball that was knocked on by both teams before Jon Wilkin chipped along the floor to gain territorial advantage.On eight minutes the Warriors came down Saints’ right and almost carved out a chance only for the ball to go dead.Saints nearly did the same seconds later – Jon Wilkin’s kick close to the line causing problems for Sam Tomkins.But on 16 minutes Wigan forged ahead – and it wasn’t surprising. Saints let the opposition run far too many lines and Liam Mossop plunged over from short range.Pat Richards making it 0-6 and then adding a penalty on 25 minutes to stretch the lead.Richards then caught a high ball to the corner on the last tackle to leave Saints with a mountain to climb.And it got much worse as Joel Tomkins grabbed an opportunistic try almost immediately after a high ball was again knocked to the floor.Ok, it took a rebound off two Saints players and there was a hint of a Wigan hand in there, but he raced away with no-one near him.With three minutes left in the half, Shaun Magennis just couldn’t pull in Francis Meli’s pass and Saints headed into the dressing rooms with a lot to improve on.Half Time: Saints 0 Wigan 20Francis Meli got on the outside of Josh Charnley twice early in the second half, but Saints couldn’t take advantage.So it was again no surprise when Brett Finch punished Saints and increased the lead.To be fair it didn’t get much better from there with the half-back partnership of Gaskell and Lomax finding it hard to create gaps.But Tony Puletua finally got Saints on the board with a charge on the angle – Makinson converting.Then Makinson crossed again – from Gaskell’s dab.But Saints continued to put the ball to ground and although Jamie Foster was hauled to the floor after he kicked the ball through, they could have little complaint.Jeff Lima scoring at the death with a try that looked offside and short to compound the misery.Match Summary:Saints:Tries: Puletua, MakinsonGoals: Makinson (1 from 1), Foster (0 from 1)Wigan:Tries: Mossop, Richards, Tomkins, Finch, LimaGoals: Richards (6 from 6)Penalties:Saints: 5Wigan: 2HT: 0-20FT:10-32REF: Thierry AlibertATT: 11540Teams:Saints:1.

first_imgNATHAN Brown says Saints’ table-topping position is pleasing but there’s a fair way to go yet.His side took over at the summit of Super League following a 32-12 win over Salford.“Being where we are on the table is pleasing and we are quite comfortable with the fact we know where we are at,” he said. “To be blunt about it though, we know if we want to get to Old Trafford we need to continue to improve in a number of areas.“Internally, we have high hopes for ourselves and there is always a pressure to do well. Regardless of being in or out of the Cup it doesn’t add extra pressure. We have passionate fans, a passionate chairman and a passionate Board.“A couple of players here have come through the successful era and now it is up to the new and younger players to demand that of each other. There is a long way to go and the blokes are putting a lot in on the field and in training and are working hard.”Saints travel to Catalan this week and there has been some positive news on the injury front.Brown continued: “Ant Walker suffered a concussion so he should be ready this week whilst Tommy Makinson had a scan on his knee and it isn’t serious – he has an outside chance for Catalan.“We’re not sure yet on Jon Wilkin, we’re waiting for a specialist’s report.“Most of the players have had a few days off to freshen up, but the medical and rehab staff have been working overtime.“They didn’t get a break – and the rehab players have been working hard too.”last_img read more

first_imgOUR mercurial number 9 wants Saints to carry on where they left off when they travel to Castleford this week.James Roby says the second half performance against Wigan was right up there – and that needs to be emulated for 80 minutes if they want to be successful at the Tigers.“It was a great result for us and a fantastic night for all the supporters,” he said. “We put in a lot of effort and got the result. It was pleasing to get the win and the added bonus was Leeds losing so we could top the table.“Our second half was very good. We completed our sets the best we have done for a long time and that helped us build pressure.“In big games there isn’t a lot in it and luckily we put ourselves in a position to take advantage of mistakes.“Our kicking game was good and it put Wigan under pressure. If we kept doing that it was inevitable the cracks would show and they did. The attitude of the lads was there for all to see. They were the first to any loose balls and we took our opportunities.“We were pleased with our second half performance but to carry on we have to emulate that.”He continued: “Castleford beat Leeds last week so they will come in confident on Thursday. They are a fantastic team, especially at home and probably a few results haven’t gone their way.“Perhaps they are coming into form at the right time and we have to be ready for that.“We cannot afford to have any nights off; our attitude has to be spot on.”last_img read more

But there’s one thing really frustrating him about this whole process.“The most frustrating part is the fact that our customers can’t get to our place of business to get a bagel. They can’t do it. And the tourists that are here don’t want to wait and try to get in here. They just turn around and go the other way,” Savis said.And other businesses say they feel the pain too.“We have no more walk in traffic. You know? We’re a dead end. So people see the construction, nobody wants to come down this far but yeah we’re hoping that the clients that have been with us for a while aren’t deterred to continue coming to us because they’re unable to park near the shop anymore,” Bean said.Savis and other business owners say they have no problem with development but so far they have not been able to turn a profit. A spokesperson for the city says they are going to continue to communicate with the local businesses, particularly to the ones in the Water Street Center, as to what can be expected in the coming days and weeks. Wilmington Downtown Incorporated also encourages people to go visit these shops and support them. WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Downtown Wilmington and construction go hand in hand as development in the area continues. However, some businesses near the construction on Water Street say they’ve seen a negative impact to their businesses.“There are signs.

REUTERS/Tiksa Negeri/File PhotoFILE PHOTO: Airplane engine parts are seen at the scene of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 plane crash, near the town of Bishoftu, southeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia March 11, 2019. REUTERS/Tiksa Negeri/File Photo Ethiopian Airlines pilots followed proper procedures when their Boeing MAX 8 airplane repeatedly nosedived before a March 10 crash that killed 157 people, Ethiopia’s minister of transport said on Thursday as she delivered the first official report on the disaster.“The crew performed all the procedures repeatedly provided by the manufacturer but was not able to control the aircraft,”  Dagmawit Moges told a news conference in the capital, Addis Ababa.In line with international rules on air accidents, the preliminary report did not attribute blame. Nor did it give a detailed analysis of the flight, which is expected to take several months before a final report due within a year.But in a clear indication of where Ethiopian investigators  are focusing most of their attention, the report cleared the pilots of using incorrect procedures and issued two recommendations directed at planemaker Boeing and regulators.It suggested that Boeing review the aircraft control system and aviation authorities confirm the problem had been solved before allowing that model of plane back into the air. It was grounded globally following the crash, which was the second deadly accident in six months involving the new model after a Lion Air crash in Indonesia in October that killed 189 people.“Since repetitive uncommanded aircraft nose down conditions are noticed … it is recommend that the aircraft control system shall be reviewed by the manufacturer,” Moges said.Ethiopian Airlines said its crew had followed all the correct guidance to handle a difficult emergency.However, the report could spark a debate with Boeing about how crew responded to problems triggered by faulty data from an airflow sensor, particularly over whether they steadied the plane before turning key software off.Boeing said it would study the report.Families of the victims, regulators and travellers around the world are waiting for clues to the accident after the new Boeing jet crashed six minutes after take-off.The preliminary report into the Lion Air disaster said the pilots lost control after grappling with the plane’s Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) software, a new automated anti-stall feature that repeatedly lowered the nose of the aircraft based on faulty data from a sensor.Boeing said on Wednesday it had successfully tested an update of the MCAS software designed to reduce its authority and make it easer for pilots to handle.WhatsApp SharePrint <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more

first_img SharePrint MGOZ / Terry CamilleriMGOZ / Terry Camilleri Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects Ian Borg and Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government and Communities Silvio Parnis met with Gozo’s local councils in Għajnsielem where they launched a sustainable transport service which will be offered by the locality’s local council to the elderly and to persons with mobility difficulties residing in Għajnsielem.This is possible after the local council placed second in a competition for permanent measures which Transport Malta organised in 2016 as part of European Mobility Week.MGOZ / Terry CamilleriThanks to a grant of €30,000 given by the Authority, the council could buy an electric van which will be transporting these residents to the health centre throughout the summer months as well as to other activities organised by the council after summer.Minister Borg explained that, like last year, there will be two competitions – one for small activities and the other one for permanent measures, from which nine different local councils have already benefited. “I encourage all local councils to come forward with their proposals towards more sustainable communities in their transport choices. Let’s work together towards a cleaner culture in the transport sector,” he said.Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana said that this initiative complements the EcoGozo vision, that of introducing new and alternative means of transport with full respect towards the environment. The Minister said that the decarbonisation strategy which the Ministry is working on will incentivise the reduction of emission thus continuing to pave the way towards the achievement of these ambitious goals. She congratulated Għajnsielem Local Council and Transport Malta for this initiative and looked ahead to more collaboration between the local council and the government.Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government and Communities Silvio Parnis also congratulated Għajnsielem Local Council for offering free transportation service to the elderly and people with disability, thanks to funds earned through the European Mobility Week.He added that this service will serve as an environmental advantage and at the same time will continue to increase inclusion for the elderly and for people with disability. Parnis concluded that there need to be more local councils that offer such services in their localities and they can do so by taking part in campaigns such as the European Mobility Week.As part of the competition for small activities, five proposals by local councils and/or NGOs will be selected to organise activities towards sustainable transport during European Mobility Week between the 16th and 22nd of September 2019. These will be given between €1,500 and €2,500 as part of this competition.The ‘Permanent Measures’ competition will lead two local councils to win a grant of €50,000 and €30,000 respectively.WhatsApp <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more

first_imgear plugs. Image Credit: Deccan Chronicle Advertisement According to online reports, scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Rostock in Germany have developed EarFieldSensing (EarFS), that recognizes facial gestures via a special ear plug.The researchers evaluated various technologies with which the movements of a person’s head and face can be interpreted. In this process, great importance was placed on practical use in everyday life.For example, systems that read gestures using sensors directly on one’s face are very accurate and able to recognize a large number of gestures. – Advertisement –  The new EarFS ear plug measures the muscular currents and distortions of the ear canal which occur during facial movements.The sensor detects even the smallest movements in the face through the way the shape of the ear canal changes and measures muscle currents that arise during the movement of the face or head.“The challenge was that these currents and movements are sometimes very small and need to be intensified,” said Denys Matthies, scientist at the Fraunhofer IGD.“In addition, the sensors cannot be interfered with by other movements of the body, such as vibrations during walking or external interference, Matthies said.“To solve this problem, an additional reference electrode was applied to the earlobe which records the signals coming from outside,” he said.The signals detected inside the ear are matched with the signals coming from the outside – the remaining useful signal enables clear facial gesture identification, even if the person wearing the EarFS is in motion.EarFS not only allows microinteractions with a smartphone, such as accepting and rejecting phone calls or operating the music player.The evaluation of facial movements also allows conclusions about weariness, exertion and other emotional states of the user.[related-posts]As a result, smartphones could warn drivers when signs of weariness and fatigue are registered or could switch automatically to mute when drivers are concentrating attentively.The use of the technology is also imaginable in the medical field.For example, it could help people with locked-in syndrome to communicate more easily by allowing them to operate computers with facial movements.source: Press Trust of India (and inputs from TOI)last_img read more

first_imgBrighton have scored two or more goals in seven of their last 10 home league games and should be relied on for more goals tonight but the pressure to get goals could easily leave the back door open too.The Star Special of both teams to score and a winner in 90 minutes looks a fair bet.

CALL STAR SPORTS 08000 521 321 [dropcap]U[/dropcap]nfair. That, of course, is the damn problem with the play-off system.The fact that Brighton were within one win of automatic promotion to the Premier League when they went to the Riverside counts for nothing – as does the fact that they finished 15 points clear of Sheffield Wednesday in the ‘regular’ season.Not only does it count for nothing – it also counts AGAINST them in my opinion. Brighton have had to regroup after coming so close yet Sheffield Wednesday are like a free roller at a poker tournament – playing carefree hands at a party that (for most of the season) they never expected to be at – four consecutive wins in March doing the trick for Wednesday.It’s pointless whinging, as the rules are there for one and all but I’ve never been a great supporter of the play-off system which may well add end of season drama (and contribute to the new Wembley building costs) but remains a tad gimmicky for my liking.The pressure certainly showed on The Seagulls in the first leg at Hillsborough when Sheffield Wednesday raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Ross Wallace and Kieran Lee – the deadlock finally broken between the pair as both matches in regular season had finished 0-0.That leaves Brighton with plenty of work to do but in a funny way less pressure than if it had been, say, 0-0 in the first leg. Brighton may well relish the challenge of now being underdogs and can grab the match and the challenge by the b**** from the outset.That certainly seems to be the view of the Brigton players too. Sam Baldock told the club website: “We’ve got nothing to lose now and the pressure is completely on them. We’re positive and we’re going to go for it. We’ve got 90 minutes for them to come to the Amex with a full stadium, with screaming fans egging us on.”He added: ”Stranger things have happened. I came off the pitch thinking, ‘Come on, bring on Monday,’ because believe me, this tie is not over.”Certainly, an early goal would make life interesting and I wouldn’t be completely surprised to see this one go the distance into penalties.Brighton have fared worse in the injury stakes with doubts over Tomer Hemed, Connor Goldson, Anthony Knockaert and Steve Sidwell from the first leg.Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal may well name an unchanged side.Brighton & Hove Albion v Sheffield WednesdayChampionship Play-Off Semi-Final 2nd Leg19:45 Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)May 2016 CHAMPIONSHIP PLAY-OFF Sheff Wed 2-0 BrightonMar 2016 CHAMPIONSHIP Brighton 0-0 Sheff WedNov 2015 CHAMPIONSHIP Sheff Wed 0-0 BrightonFeb 2015 CHAMPIONSHIP Sheff Wed 0-0 BrightonAug 2014 CHAMPIONSHIP Brighton 0-1 Sheff WedMar 2014 CHAMPIONSHIP Sheff Wed 1-0 BrightonOct 2013 CHAMPIONSHIP Brighton 1-1 Sheff WedFeb 2013 CHAMPIONSHIP Sheff Wed 3-1 BrightonSep 2012 CHAMPIONSHIP Brighton 3-0 Sheff WedApr 2011 LEAGUE ONE Brighton 2-0 Sheff WedSTAR SPECIALSlast_img read more
