Half-time: Man Utd 1 Fulham 0

first_imgRyan Giggs’ third-minute penalty put Manchester United in the driving seat in the FA Cup fourth-round clash at Old Trafford.After Aaron Hughes’ handball in the box, Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer got a hand to Giggs’ spot-kick but could not keep it out of the net.The Whites were fortunate not to have another penalty awarded against them when Damien Duff handled Giggs’ chip into the area.And Schwarzer then pushed an effort from Wayne Rooney onto the bar as the home side continued to dominate.United kept pressing and Schwarzer produced another save from Rooney before seeing Nani’s shot flash wide of the post.Fulham’s best moment came when Sascha Riether shot wide late in the first half.Fulham: Schwarzer, Riether, Hughes, Hangeland, Riise, Kacaniklic, Sidwell, Baird, Duff, Ruiz, Berbatov.Subs: Etheridge, Senderos, Petric, Karagounis, Briggs, Rodallega, Dejagah.Click here for our Man Utd v Fulham 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Illinois study determines areas vulnerable to riparian erosion

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Researchers at the University of Illinois collaborated with colleagues in Oklahoma to identify areas along a riparian zone, that is, alongside rivers that are susceptible to erosion.Maria Chu, an assistant professor in agricultural and biological engineering (ABE), and Alejandra Botero-Acosta, a Ph.D. student in ABE, developed a modeling framework which they used to identify those areas in the Fort Cobb Reservoir Experimental Watershed (FCREW) in southcentral Oklahoma. The FCREW has three sub-watersheds: Cobb, Lake, and Willow. Chu, Botero-Acosta, and their colleagues used readily available USDA environmental data from the area.“A healthy riparian buffer intercepts suspended solids, nitrogen, and phosphorous,” said Botero-Acosta, “reducing sediment load and nutrient pollution in the rivers. We found in our literature review that 50% of the sediments in the river were coming from the riparian zone. We wanted to identify those locations so conservation and management practices can be focused on those points.”Predicting riparian erosion at the watershed scale is challenging because of the complex interactions between the different variables that govern soil erosion and the inherent uncertainties in measuring those processes. In this study, Botero-Acosta says they found that soil type and land use were the two most important variables.“The most vulnerable areas for erosion were found to be located at the upper riparian zone of the Cobb and Lake sub-watersheds. The soil there is sand and silt, which is very prone to erosion,” she said. “Land use was also important. Livestock grazing and row crops thinned the vegetation, so that increased erosion.”Hydrological variables that are dynamic, such as rainfall, lateral and overland inflow, and discharge, were not as significant in predicting the location of erosion. However, Botero-Acosta said “In order to convert flow into velocity, we needed a cross section of the river, and we didn’t have that data. For future work, implementing that kind of data will give us better results regarding hydrological variables, because we do think that discharge can affect riparian erosion.”Botero-Acosta said mitigating riparian erosion is ultimately beneficial to the population at large.“A watershed provides ecosystems services to the community, which people sometimes take for granted. Fresh water to drink, water to irrigate crops, oxygen-rich water to support fish populations, those are all connected to a healthy watershed,” she said.Chu will be conducting a similar study in the Upper Sangamon Watershed, near Decatur. The Sangamon watershed is almost twice the size of the Fort Cobb watershed, and the area is approximately 90% agricultural, as opposed to 60% agricultural in Oklahoma. Chu received funding from the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture to do a hydrologic assessment of the watershed. The study will use a suite of hydrologic and environmental models to simulate different land management practices and their effects on ecosystems services such as water clarity, nutrient reduction, and fish species richness.The Fort Cobb study, “Riparian erosion vulnerability model based on environmental features,” is written by Chu and Botero-Acosta, along with colleagues Jorge Guzman, research hydrologist at the Center for Spatial Analysis, University of Oklahoma; Daniel Moriasi, research hydrologist at USDA-ARS Grazinglands Research Laboratory, El Reno, Oklahoma; and Patrick Starks, soil scientist at USDA-ARS Grazinglands Research Laboratory, El Reno, Oklahoma. It appears in the Journal of Environmental Management, and a pdf of the full paper is available online.last_img read more

Tesla sued for wrongful death after fatal crash involving Autopilot

first_imgEnlarge ImageThis is the second lawsuit Tesla has faced this year following a fatal collision with Autopilot active. Nick Miotke/Roadshow Earlier this year, the family of a Tesla Model X owner who was killed in a collision when the car’s Autopilot was engaged filed a lawsuit against the automaker in California state court. Now, the Fremont-based automaker has a second, similar suit to contend with.The family of Jeremy Banner is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Tesla, asking for damages in excess of $15,000, The Verge reports. According to NBC affiliate WPTV, the lawsuit was announced on Thursday, and it should be filed shortly in Palm Beach County, Florida. A Tesla spokesperson declined to comment.The collision occurred on March 1. Banner’s 2018 Tesla Model 3 was traveling southbound on State Highway 441 in Delray Beach when it struck an eastbound tractor-trailer. The crash ripped the roof off the Model 3, killing Banner. According to the NTSB’s preliminary report, Banner engaged Autopilot approximately 10 seconds prior to the collision, and the system did not detect the driver’s hands on the wheel “from less than 8 seconds before the crash,” the report states. The report says the vehicle was traveling about 68 mph before the collision, 13 mph over the posted limit. The NTSB notes that both data and videos show that neither the car nor the driver initiated any sort of evasive maneuver prior to the crash. The investigation is still ongoing.The crash has parallels with another, similar collision that also claimed the life of a Tesla driver. In May 2016, Joshua Brown’s Model S collided with the side of a tractor-trailer, killing him. The resulting preliminary report from the NTSB did not find Tesla at fault, and it also refuted claims that Brown had been watching a movie just before the crash.

Earlier this year, the family of Walter Huang sought damages from the automaker due to perceived negligence on Tesla’s part. Huang’s Model X collided with a highway barrier while Autopilot was active in Mountain View, California. Following the crash, Tesla issued a statement casting blame on Huang while simultaneously touting the benefits of its system, although the NTSB’s preliminary report pointed to several contributing factors.

Shocking Radhika Apte was the first choice for Vicky Donor was replaced

first_imgRadhika AptePR HandoutIf sipping coffee with Karan Johar on his chat show Koffee with Karan was not enough, celebs seem to be having a rough time dealing with Neha Dhupia’s scary spice on her chat show – No Filter Neha. From candid revelations to shocking confessions, celebs on the show have said it all, bared it all. And the recent revelation that comes from Radhika Apte has taken us aback.Radhika Apte and Ayushmann Khurrana graced the finale episode of No Filter Neha and bared their hearts out. Talking about a role she lost out on due to body issues, Radhika Apte revealed that she was the first choice for ‘Vicky Donor’. She said that she had been selected without giving an audition for the female lead in the film, but, the makers wanted her to lose weight. She revealed that though she was never fat, the makers had a particular weight and shape in mind and hence had asked her to lose weight. Radhika, who was supposed to go on vacation had promised them that she would lose all the weight within the given time frame of two months. First, the makers agreed, but, later decided to replace her with Yami Gautam.Radhika revealed that though she takes criticism at work very positively, this particular didn’t go down well with her and left her worried. She revealed that she had stopped eating for a long period after that episode.Well, with the fabulous choices that Radhika seems to be making these days and the amount of popularity she has gained, it was certainly a loss for the makers Shoojit Sircar and the team and definitely a massive gain for Yami Gautam, who hasn’t had the same amount of success after that.last_img read more

New Taylor Swift Film Has Glitchy Debut on Apple Music

first_img Taylor Swift fans hoping to watch the pop singer’s concert on Apple Music on Sunday were instead greeted by “Blank Space.”The superstar’s concert documentary, The 1989 World Tour Live, was set to go live on Dec. 20, but the premiere of the film, which is exclusive to the Apple Music platform, wasn’t as smooth as the tech giant would have liked.Meant to be available for viewing on iPads, iPhones, iPod touch, Macs and PCs with iTunes and Apple TV, fans were met with crashes, glitchy streaming or the inability to even locate the movie. Since Sunday morning, Apple Music Help twitter account has continued to field customer-service requests from frustrated users as of this story.Related: Taylor Swift’s Latest Trademark Filings Reveal a Shrewd Business Strategy@bentisdell We’d like to look into this with you.

Follow up in a DM.— Apple Music Help (@AppleMusicHelp) December 21, 2015Ahead of the Apple Music launch in July, Swift took to Tumblr in a post titled, “To Apple, Love Taylor,” to take the company to task about how during the streaming service’s three-month trial period, the artists, writers and producers in question would not be compensated.Related: Why Taylor Swift Is Now the Most Powerful Person in TechLikely not looking to run afoul of Swift and her sizable music industry clout (especially given how much attention was paid to the singer’s decision to remove her music from Spotify in 2014) , Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet and software, tweeted to Swift that the company would change its policy.#AppleMusic will pay artist for streaming, even during customer’s free trial period— Eddy Cue (@cue) June 22, 2015We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple— Eddy Cue (@cue) June 22, 2015Back in October, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the music streaming service had more than 15 million users, with 6.5 million paying the $9.99 monthly subscriber fee. And in December, with all forgiven between the two giant business entities — Apple Music was the lone streaming service to offer the massive hit album 1989 to listeners — Swift announced the streaming deal with Apple on Twitter, on her birthday earlier this month. Judging by the volume of complaints, it seems like the partnership will work out quite nicely for both parties once the technical difficulties are resolved.Related: Yes, Believe It: Taylor Swift Is a Customer Retention Expert Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 3 min read December 21, 2015center_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now »last_img read more

first_imgRaise your hand if you want to stay at Taco Bell’s new hotel Travelweek Group Tags: Taco Bell IRVINE, CA — Taco Bell is opening a hotel. We repeat – Taco Bell is opening a hotel.What a time to be alive! The fast-food chain revealed last month that it will be opening its first-ever hotel in Palm Springs, California called ‘The Bell: A Taco Bell Hotel and Resort’. With excitement building nationwide ahead of the hotel’s August launch, the company has just announced that reservations open on Thursday, June 27 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET on its website.But here’s the catch: the adults-only (18+) pop-up hotel will only be open for four nights.First check-in begins Aug. 8, with final checkout on Aug. 12, with no minimum night stay. And with such a small window of opportunity, you better believe guests will be booking with visions of burritos dancing in their heads.Taking over an existing hotel at 333 E. Palm Canyon Drive, The Bell offers over 70 rooms across four room types: one king bed (standard view), one king bed (pool view), two queen beds (standard view), and two queen beds (pool view).
