Villa ‘can’t protect’ underperforming players – Black

first_imgAlexandre Pato scored one of Chelsea’s goals at Villa ParkAston Villa’s caretaker boss Eric Black said the players owed the supporters a performance following the 4-0 home defeat by Chelsea.The atmosphere at Villa Park soured as the match went on, with some players booed by the home fans and banners thrown on to the pitch in a co-ordinated 74th-minute protest aimed at reclusive owner Randy Lerner.Villa appear to be heading for the Championship and sacked manager Remi Garde last week, as part of a restructuring at the club which has seen several incomings and outgoings at board level.Black insisted the players would have to cope with the criticism coming their way, and those singled out for abuse would not be taken out of the firing line.He said: “You can’t protect them. We can do as much as we can to prepare them mentally, physically, technically, tactically – but once they go over the line, they’re paid to be professional footballers.“That’s the responsibility that’s put on them and that’s what they have to deal with.“What we have to do is to try and get the supporters back onside. The only way you can do that is by doing it on the pitch.“It’s a massive turnaround required at the club and I think people are on the way to doing that. But it’s going to take time.”Black felt a positive start to the game was undermined by individual errors, with Villa conceding a penalty in first-half injury-time and then a third goal seconds after the restart.He said: “We started the game okay, mainly trying to contain Chelsea more than anything else. Once the [first] goal went in, visibly you can see they take a big dent.“However, to compound that, the penalty a minute before half-time and to concede another one right after half-time, makes it an enormous challenge.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

MH370: Reverse drift modelling impossible!

first_imgHopes that a piece of wing debris from a Boeing 777 could quickly lead investigators to the main wreckage of MH370 have been dashed because of uncertainty surrounding the date it washed ashore at the Reunion Islands.Yesterday Charitha Pattiaratchi Professor of Coastal Oceanography at University of Western Australia said that the reverse drift modelling was “impossible” due to question marks over timing.Last year, after the loss of MH370 with 239 passengers and crew on March 8, the University’s forward drift analysis predicted debris would wash up in East Africa region within 12 to 18 months if the plane crashed where the investigators are currently looking 1,800km south-west of Perth Australia.World’s Safest Airlines Missing ID plate hampers link to MH370“Current and wind patterns change so to do reverse modelling you need an accurate location and time when the debris came ashore,” said Professor Pattiaratchi.Over the weekend it was revealed that the flaperon was first discovered in May but not reported and could have come ashore earlier.And a man who works as a rubbish collector on the island has also admitted that he has been burning possible aircraft debris as part of his job.According to the UK Telegraph’s Harriet Alexander, Nicolas Ferrier found two suitcases “full of things” which he burnt.“That’s my job. I collect rubbish, and burn it.”“I could have found many things that belonged to the plane, and burnt them, without realising,” Mr Ferrier told Ms Alexander.He noticed the flaperon in May and used it as a table when he was fishing!According to the Telegraph’s article his story is supported by another local named as Isabelle, who spotted the same object while walking on the beach in May, accompanied by her 10-year-old son.“It was the beginning of the holidays – around May 10,” she told local news website Zinfos974.com.“I was walking with my son, Krishna. Then from a rock on which we were standing, he saw an object and shouted: ‘Mum that looks like the wing of a plane!’”Krishna then jumped on what looked like a suitcase. He managed to prise it open, and then spotted another suitcase buried in the black sand.They went home, and thought nothing of it until last week when the flaperon discover was announced according to Ms Alexander.The flaperon, was transported to the French government laboratories in Toulouse on Saturday for detailed examination which will start on Wednesday this week.As well as identifying what Boeing 777 the flaperon came from the investigators, if they link it to MH370, will then examine damage and look for chemical traces to see if that will give them clues to what happened to the aircraft.A critical identification plate on the Boeing 777 flaperon that would possibly link it immediately to MH370 is missing because of the effect of sea water on the adhesive that bonds it to the structure.According to a former crash investigator the metal ID plate has almost certainly come away because of the “exposure to sea water.”So what should have been a simple ID exercise now becomes a time consuming forensic investigation.A Boeing part number (657BB) painted on to the flaperon confirms the object is from a Boeing 777, according to the Malaysian Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi.“From the part number, it is confirmed that it is from a Boeing 777 aircraft. This information is from MAS (Malaysia Airlines). They have informed me,” said Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi.Investigators will likely have to take the flaperon apart to locate serial numbers that will indicate what batch the flaperon or its components came from and Boeing will be able to trace it to the actual 777 that it was installed.last_img read more

GitHub Introduces Organizations, Makes Managing Code Repositories Easier

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting audrey watters Managing coding collaboration just got a lot easier. GitHub, the web-based code hosting project, announced today the introduction of “Organizations,” an easier way to manage group-owned code repositories. “Organizations” will facilitate the GitHub workflow for businesses and for large open source projects, making it easier to manage distributed teams as well as internal ones. The new feature allows for the centralization of an organization’s code repositories. The feature creates an org structure, as well as permissions control, for the members of your coding team. The organization administrator can establish settings, including establishing varying read/write and administrative permissions for team members.Better Permissions ControlThe permission levels include:Pull Only: People can see the code, participate in private wikis, but cannot push code to the organization-controlled repository. Pull+Push: Currently GitHub’s default permission setting, collaborators can participate in the project and push code but cannot change the repository’s meta data. Pull+Push+Administrative: This new permission level allows you to grant participatory, push and administrative permissions. These members can do anything a repository owner can do.Fork FriendlyIf you have admin-level permissions on behalf of the organization, you can also “fork” your project to a new repository. Team members’ forks can be added to the organization’s repository as well.Migrating from a shared user account into an organization is simple, says GitHub, as is the new pricing plan structure. Organizations for open source projects remain free of charge. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#start#tips Related Posts last_img read more

New Rules for Fluorescents and Gas Fireplaces

first_imgThe Department of Energy has proposed a ban on continuously burning pilot lights in decorative hearth products such as gas fireplaces.According to a blog posted by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, the pilot light in a gas fireplace can account for 40 percent of the total amount of energy the device consumes.The proposed ban wouldn’t take effect until five years after publication of the final rule — so consumers could expect to see pilot lights on new gas fireplaces until the end of 2020.The department said redesigning the ignition systems on fireplaces and similar products would save the average consumer about $165 over the life of the product, the ACEEE said. Nationally, the new standard would save consumers $3 billion over 30 years while reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 37 million metric tons. New efficiency standards for fluorescentsSeparately, the energy department posted its final rule on new efficiency standards for tubular (linear) fluorescent lamps, to go into effect in 2018, according to a summary posted at Mainstreet.com.Efficiency (lumens per watt of electricity) will have to improve by varying amounts, depending on the length and type of the lamp.The familiar fluorescent lighting fixtures account for as much as 70 percent of the electricity used for lighting in commercial and industrial buildings in the U.S., the post says, and the new efficiency standards will mean $78 billion in savings for consumers through 2030.The rule was published in the Federal Register on January 26.Noah Horowitz, a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council, told Mainstreet.com that the government missed an opportunity for more energy savings by failing to update standards for incandescent based reflector lamps.“While a portion of the market is naturally moving to LEDs instead of incandescent based reflector lamps, DOE left hundreds of millions of dollars of annual savings on the table by choosing not to update its standards for these products,” he said. “As such, many of the bulbs screwed into the cans in your ceiling will continue to be the least efficient bulb in your home for years to come.”last_img read more
