Leeds manager update! Fowler to Elland Road unlikely, claims Wobschall

first_imgYorkshire Evening Post journalist Leon Wobschall claims Robbie Fowler is unlikely to be appointed Leeds United manager.The former Liverpool and Whites striker has been linked with the vacant position at Elland Road, following David Hockaday’s departure.But football writer Wobschall insists he can’t see the 39-year-old being handed the reins at the Yorkshire side.“The smart money woun’t be on Fowler,” he told the Sports Bar. “The David Hockaday experiement didn’t work, he only lasted 70 days, and it was a bolt from the blue when his name appeared.“It would be another real punt if Fowler [got the job]. It sounds good, and might make a few headlines, but I really can’t see it happening.”last_img read more

Ronaldo rested as Juve lose, Inter win in Milan derby

first_imgWithout him the team slumped to a 2-0 defeat but still remain comfortably on track for an eighth consecutive league title.Juventus’s lead was cut to 15 points by Napoli who got back winning, prevailing 4-2 against Udinese after goalkeeper David Ospina collapsed on the pitch after suffering a head injury.The on-loan Arsenal goalkeeper was later given the all clear following a CT scan at a Naples hospital.Juventus had won 24 of their 27 previous matches in Serie A this season with three draws, including a 1-1 stalemate against Genoa in Turin.“It’s not a tragedy, but I’m sorry because we wanted to remain unbeaten,” said Allegri.“You can’t play all the games at your maximum. The Champions League match certainly weighed heavy.”It was the first league defeat for Allegri’s side since April 2018 against Napoli, and first away since losing at Sampdoria in November 2017.– ‘Time to unplug’ –Genoa’s Italian midfielder Stefano Sturaro celebrates after opening the scoring against Juventus © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOThe Italian champions had already been beaten this season by Atalanta in the Coppa Italia and lost in the Champions League to Young Boys in the group stage and Atletico Madrid in the last-16 first leg.“The defeat could do us good, because maybe we thought we already had the league in our pockets and instead we still have to get five victories,” continued Allegri.“Much like the Coppa Italia defeat to Atalanta, we picked the right game to lose, because it’s just before the break for international duty, so we have time to unplug and rest.”Ex-Juventus midfielder Stefano Sturaro, 26, playing his first game after ten months out with a tendon injury, scored just two minutes after coming off the bench. Another substitute Goran Pandev sealed victory for Geno with ten minutes to go.“I’m happy for him (Sturaro), because he suffered a lot and today he changed the game,” said Allegri.Napoli, meanwhile, rallied after letting a two-goal lead slip just before Ospina’s frightening collapse.The Colombian international had collided with Udinese striker Ignacio Pussetto minutes into the game, before collapsing just before half-time.“Fortunately it’s nothing serious, he’s conscious, they did a CT scan that is negative, he’ll remain under observation tonight,” said coach Carlo Ancelotti.Napoli’s Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina (bottom) collides with Udinese’s Argentine forward Ignacio Pussetto © AFP / Carlo HermannAmin Younes curled in his first Serie A goal after 17 minutes, with Jose Callejon connecting with a Dries Mertens cross for the second on 26 minutes.But Kevin Lasagna and Seko Fofana got two past Ospina in a six-minute spell after the half-hour mark as the Colombian looked out-of-sorts after his fourth-minute collision.Alex Meret replaced Ospina with Napoli pulling ahead when Arkadiusz Milik headed in a Callejon corner on 57 minutes, with Mertens sealing the three points on 69 minutes.– Inter edge derby –Amid drama and tension at the San Siro, Inter Milan overtook AC Milan to consolidate their hopes of a Champions League return next season, ending Gennaro Gattuso’s unbeaten run going back to December 22.AC Milan have not played in the Champions League since 2014.Matias Vecino found a way through after just three minutes at the San Siro, days after his team’s Europa League exit.Inter boosted hopes of a Champions League return again next season with a Milan derby win © AFP / Miguel MEDINAStefan de Vrij added the second on 51 minutes and Lautaro Martinez slotted in the third from the penalty spot.For Milan, Tiemoue Bakayoko headed in after 57 minutes with Mateo Musacchio reacting quickly to finish off a rebound (71).Inter had won the reverse fixture thanks to ex-captain Mauro Icardi’s late winner but the Argentine has not played in over a month amid a contract dispute.Luciano Spalletti’s side are now two points ahead of Milan.Roma, are fifth, four points adrift of the Champions League places after a 2-1 defeat to SPAL, with Lazio two points behind in sixth after beating Parma 4-1.Atalanta are equal on points with Lazio after being held 1-1 by bottom club Chievo.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Juventus forward Federico Bernardeschi reacts after his side’s first Serie A defeat of the season to Genoa © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOMILAN, Italy, Mar 18 – Cristiano Ronaldo was rested and Juventus crashed to their first Serie A defeat of the season at Genoa on Sunday following their Champions League heroics, as Inter won a fiery Milan derby clash 3-2 to move into third ahead of city rivals AC Milan.Ronaldo had fired Juventus into the European quarter-finals with a comeback victory over Atletico Madrid last Tuesday.last_img read more

Joy rider crashes SUV into school library

first_imgPICO RIVERA – A teenager joy-riding in his mother’s sport utility vehicle lost control and slammed into the wall of Rivera Middle School’s library, leaving students unable to use the facility, school officials said Wednesday. “You don’t expect to have a car drive into your school library – that’s not a typical occurrence at a school site,” Rivera Principal Andrew Alvidrez said. “We are looking into what we need to do next.” The impact of the crash knocked books across the room, crumbled shelves and spread concrete and wood debris all over the library, Alvidrez said. Administrators at the school on Citronell Street closed the library, likely through the rest of this week. Alvidrez estimated it could cost anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 to repair the damaged wall. However, officials Wednesday were seeking permission from a structural engineer to operate one half of the library that did not sustain damage. If the engineer approves it, half of the library might open this afternoon. “Otherwise, we will move books to another room,” said Alvidrez. For the students, many of whom are in an accelerated reading program, having daily access to the library is essential, sixth-grade teacher Lourdes Torres said. “This is definitely a loss. The kids here count on their library,” she said. Sixth-grade student Marlee Rangel called the loss of library “kind of harsh.” “Kids here really need to check out books from the library,” she said. Police said they believe the 17-year-old boy involved in the crash was driving his mother’s Ford Explorer. He was driving on Danbridge Street when he lost control of the vehicle at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, said Deputy Mark Contreras of the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station. The boy left the scene. However, after deputies contacted the vehicle’s registered owner, the boy and one of his parents returned to the crash scene, said Contreras. He was booked on suspicion of hit-and-run and was released to his parents’ custody. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562)698-0955, Ext. 3028 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Are the Days of Tungsten Lighting Over?

first_imgWith the introduction of the Arri Skypanels, the Digital Sputnik, and many others, is LED lighting the future of filmmaking?Cover image via Shutterstock.I’m a big proponent of LED lighting. I use LEDs on nearly every shoot. However, I also have tungsten fixtures wherever I go. Yes, tungsten lighting does have some drawbacks. They’re hot. They’re power-hungry, and they’re not daylight-balanced. However, tungsten lighting is still (and will remain) a vital tool in the filmmaker’s arsenal.Image via B&H.There are certain things that a tungsten light can do that modern LEDs just can’t. For these reasons, I still continue to use these invaluable tools on set. I’m going to break down the four reasons why I think we’ll still be seeing tungsten lighting on sets for many years to come.Light Quality The quality of light from a tungsten source simply outperforms LEDs. They’re color-balanced perfectly at 100 CRI. I also love how much control a good fresnel light offers with the beam of light. Yes, there are fresnel LED options out on the market. However, they don’t have the same sharp quality to their spot or smoothness to their flood. LED options simply can’t match this feature quite yet. The fact that the fresnel lenses are so great inside tungsten fixtures means this light will be around for years to come.A tungsten source can also be about as raw as you can get — especially with open-face options. This gives you more control as a cinematographer to shape the lights for the scene.Image via Resolution Rentals.PriceQuality LED lighting is expensive. Tungsten lighting is less expensive. It’s as simple as that. You can look at any rental house’s pricing list, and tungsten fixtures will always be cheaper than LEDs. For budget shoots, tungsten packages are great way to go because they will give you the most raw and punchy output that you could want. LED prices have become more affordable over the years, and they may even catch up at some point — but not yet.I’ve even seen many rental houses offer discounts on their tungsten packages. Also, when looking to purchase your own set of lights, tungsten sources are usually still cheaper than LED sources. I always find it wise to have a good mix of LED and tungsten sources as each type of lighting is its own paintbrush. Different scenes require different approaches.Image via B&H.Build QualityTungsten light sources are built like tanks. I’ve used Mole Richardson heads that are older than I am. These lights were built to last through years of hard work on sets, and those same lights are still ready to work today.While tungsten lights may be power hungry, hot, and raw, they are still fantastic tools that help filmmakers tell our stories. I still plan on using tungsten lighting in the years to come.Do you only used LEDs now or are you using a mixture of light sources? Let us know in the comments.For more information on LEDs and tungsten lighting, check out these articles.Understanding Color Rendering Index with LEDsThe Future of LED Lighting with the ARRI SkyPanelThis LED Lighting Hack Can Literally Illuminate MountainsLighting for Film & Video: LED vs TungstenUnderstanding Set Lighting and Color Temperaturelast_img read more

Video: Robotic Crabs Reveal Sexual Frustration in Crustaceans

first_imgWith his huge, showy, yellow claw, the male Mjöberg’s fiddler crab (Uca mjoebergi) is an eye-catching crustacean that lives on the marine mud flats of northern Australia. Like many other fiddlers, he uses his claw to attract a mate, the much smaller and more demure female. Researchers have been studying how female fiddlers choose between their many suitors. They’ve learned, for instance, that males with larger claws, especially those that wave them faster, have an edge in dating. To amp up their science, however, they’ve added a robotic twist—building “RoboCrabs” that can wave an array of claws in a variety of ways. The automated fiddlers have helped the scientists uncover other factors that influence mate choice. In a study published this month in Behavioral Ecology, for example, they found that females showed a strong aversion to otherwise irresistible males if the guys were waving from the tops of small mounds. That might be because elevated mating sites are too dry or exposed to predators. But the researchers admit they aren’t sure why females scorned the elevated crabs—which they dubbed the “fiddlers on the roof.”(Video credit: Science/AAAS)Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more
