first_imgWhat happened to them?We are in a situation where we have to get up to each other. They have competed well, we have not been able to mark the chances we generate and in the end if we play like this it is normal for any team to win. I think we have to change the attitude and try to generate more chances with more confidence to make more goals.He says that playing like this is normal to lose.It is seen that their intensity has been different from ours, we have not been with much confidence and we have to try to be ourselves on the field and get the matches out.It is a very early elimination, what do you think? Now it is complicated, we have to forget because there is no other option. Work hard, we keep going, we have many games left and we hope that good things come out.Is it time to apologize to the fans?It is seen that the team has had many occasions, we lack confidence to put them. The support of the fans is what we need most right now, we hope they continue to support us and we can move things forward.Simeone says that it is his responsibility.As players we have a responsibility for this to happen. We are the ones on the field and we are the most responsible. We have to work hard so that things like this do not happen.last_img read more

first_imgPartial view of 25 licensed customs brokers and LRA officials following the licensing program on June 29, 2018The Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) has certificated and licensed 25 customs brokers who successfully passed the customs broker’s exams the entity administered to them, a release has said.Customs brokers are private individuals, partnerships or associations licensed to assist importers and exporters in meeting requirements governing imports and exports. They act as professional agents for an importer or exporter, prepare and submit all documents for clearing goods through customs.According to the release, the licensing of the first batch of 25 Customs Brokers is in keeping with Section 6.0 A (iii) of the Customs Brokers Revenue Administrative Regulation, which mandates the entity to administer Customs Brokers Competency Licensing Examination as a standard for practicing customs brokerage.LRA former Commissioner General Elfrieda Stewart-Tamba, who presented the Certificates of License to the brokers at a recent ceremony, described the event as a milestone achievement for the entity.The 25 were the first the LRA has licensed since it was established four years ago.Madam Tamba encouraged customs brokers, including the newly-licensed personnel who successfully went through the LRA’s Customs examination requirements, to consider the profession as a noble career.She emphasized the need for collaboration between customs brokers and the LRA as both parties are serving the interest of the country’s taxpayers.Madam Tamba indicated that modernizing and transforming Liberia’s revenue administration remains quite vital, “but this cannot be achieved without the partnership of customs brokers.”William Buku, Assistant Commissioner of Customs for Technical Operations, congratulated the licensed customs brokers, but cautioned that those pursuing career in the field of customs brokerage should see it as a noble profession that they should take seriously.Buku then encouraged the newly-licensed customs brokers to establish themselves into businesses and be trustworthy at all times. He warned them against the practice of dishonesty while rendering services to their clients as well as to the LRA.Meanwhile, speaking on behalf of his fellow customs brokers, Kansualism Berk Kansuah thanked the LRA management for the exercise.Mr. Kansuah said his colleagues will not work in isolation if they are to succeed in their individual businesses, but will unite and work in the best interest of the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgOn a standard desktop computer, said Moustakas, “if somehow you could slap on enough memory and plug in enough disk space, it would take five years of continuous computing time.” But backed by the processing power of a JPL supercomputer, he said, “these are things we can do on the order of days or weeks.” JPL has four supercomputers for tackling such large problems. The newest was installed in November 2004, and harnesses the combined power of 1,024 PCs stacked in 22 neat rows of racks. Just keeping them cool takes three air conditioners, which – like the computers – run 24 hours a day. “When we lost air conditioning, the room got over 100 degrees pretty quick,” said Cris Windoffer, a JPL senior system administrator. Sometimes the computers are harnessed to run thousands of smaller simulations at once for a project; sometimes they apply their brains to one bigger task. Engineers have used the computers to simulate different trajectories to Mars and help pick landing sites for the two martian rovers, and “one of our biggest jobs for a long time was ocean current modeling to help weather modeling,” Windoffer said. Even closer to home, JPL researchers use the computers to run an earthquake simulation program called QuakeSIM. “What we want to understand is how earthquake faults interact with each other, how they might fail and how long that would take,” said Andrea Donnellan, a JPL geophysicist. The supercomputers allow her and her colleagues to combine models of how the ground stores stress with real data about the motions of the Earth. For more accurate earthquake prediction, Donnellan said, the most important thing is to get more real data to work with. But she’s not the only one looking to improve their tools. “In PC times, we’re already quite old,” Windoffer said of JPL’s fastest computer. “I’m ready for a new supercomputer right now.” elise.kleeman@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4451 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LA CA ADA FLINTRIDGE – Everything we can see – from atoms to humans to stars – adds up to less than one-20th of all there is in the universe. The other 96 percent is made of two mysterious substances filling the vast blackness between: dark matter and dark energy. There exists no telescope, no microscope that can spot either. To study dark matter and dark energy, then, scientists must look for tiny signs, left like animal tracks through a forest. But guessing where in the universe’s expanse to search for clues is itself a massive challenge, one that a bank of supercomputers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is helping solve. “We’re trying to come to terms, in unprecedented detail, with what we should see when we look at our galaxies and other galaxies,” said astronomer Lexi Moustakas. In Moustakas’ case, JPL’s supercomputer brains have allowed him to study how dark matter could have left its footprint on galaxies such as our Milky Way. “Galaxies are constantly being harassed by bullets of dark matter,” he said. Using massive programs that model the universe, “We start with this simulated set of galaxies at a time when the universe was much younger than it was today, about 10 billion years younger, and we just let it evolve.” In the end, the detailed simulations predicted that dark matter’s gravity tugs on nearby stars as it speeds past them. Future telescope missions can now search for such shifted stars as evidence of the mysterious matter they could not otherwise see. Studying the effects of a universe of dark matter was no small feat, though. last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia fans show their love from teh stands during their friendly match against Hull City on May 13, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 7- First half goals from Dan Guya and Yema Mwana saw Bandari break Gor Mahia’s unbeaten Kenyan Premier League run with a 2-1 win at the Mbaraki Complex in Mombasa on Tuesday afternoon.Gor Mahia pulled one back through Jacques Tuyisenge 13 minutes from time, but it was never enough to call for a comeback. Bandari had to finish the game with 10 men after Fred Nkata was sent off for a second yellow card. Heading into the tie, Gor were on a run of 22 matches without defeat and had only dropped points on five occasions. However, Bandari under new coach Bernard Mwalala were determined to be the first to ‘break Gor Mahia’s virginity’ and they did so with a pinch of style.Heading into the tie, Gor boss Dylan Kerr fielded his strongest 11 having been given a scare in a 2-2 draw against Nakumatt over the weekend. The only difference was keeper SHabaan Odhoji who stepped in ahead of Boniface Oluoch who remains sidelined.Ernest Wendo returned for the first time since the CECAFA Kagame Cup where he limped off with a hamstring strain and he partnered Humphrey Mieno in midfield.K’Ogalo were shocked early with Guya heading the home side into the lead turning in a corner after 11 minutes, sending the home fans into frenzy while the green army of K’Ogalo was sent into stunned silence.Gor Mahia winger George ‘Blackberry Odhiambo’ Odhiambo beats Bandari’s Nicholas Meja during their first leg meeting in Machakos Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYABut the league leaders kept pushing hoping they would get the steering wheel back with Godfrey Walusimbi and George Odhiambo making inroads on the left, but their industry didn’t provide much for the forwards led by Francis Mustafa.It was Bandari however who would get their party going, Congolese import Yema Mwana sending them 2-0 up after 35 minutes.The hosts should have added another one few minutes later when Darius Msagha broke off on the counter from the right beating Walusimbi to face Odhoji one on one, but he could not get the ball past the keeper with Mwana screaming for the ball in a better position.Gor came back with determined hearts in the second half, looking to salvage their invincibility with at least a point.Harun Shakava was the first to have a go at goal with a 65th minute stinging freekick from range but Bandari keeper Faruk Shikhalo proved equal to the task making a decent save.From another set piece, this time taken by Francis Kahata, Gor had a chance to get the scoring on but the effort curled beyond the wall but wide.Gor ultimately pulled one back through Jacques Tuyisenge in the 77th minute, but it was too little too late as Bandari managed to hold their own and get the three points.The hosts were reduced to 10 men for the final few minutes of the game when Fred Nkata was given his marching orders for a second yellow card. Coach Mwalala made a change bringing in Siraj Mohammed to fill in the void at left back.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img• For full fire coverage vist the Special Section. SAN DIEGO – A merciful easing of the winds fueling Southern California’s sprawling wildfires finally gave firefighters a chance to fight back against some blazes Wednesday, and weary residents could take solace in an overriding sign of hope: Just one person has died from the flames. That contrasts to 22 dead from a fire of similar magnitude four years ago, and while the final toll has yet to be tallied from this week’s fires, officials were crediting an automated, reverse 9-1-1 calling system that prompted the orderly evacuation of more than a half-million people. That was 10 times the number evacuated four years ago. “They are more determined that people leave,” said Steve Levstik, who got his call 15 minutes before flames swept through his Rancho Bernardo neighborhood. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“It was very intense. On the call, it was like, `This area, go! This area, go!’ In 2003 there was less guidance. It was like, `Just pay attention to the news and if it looks bad, leave.”‘ On Wednesday, winds dropped to 21 mph to 36 mph, considerably less than the fierce gusts of up to 100 mph that whipped fire zones earlier in the week. As the fire threats diminished, authorities began allowing tens of thousands of people to return to their homes. “The vast majority of the city is now open for people to return,” San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders told a news conference late Wednesday afternoon. San Diego County Sheriff Bill Kolender said the priority now is getting people back into their homes and back to their businesses. The improving weather also allowed for a greater aerial assault on the flames and helped firefighters beat back the most destructive blazes. Within hours of returning to the sky, helicopters and air tankers dropped 30 to 35 loads of water on two fires that have burned hundreds of homes in the San Bernardino Mountains, near Lake Arrowhead. The Slide Fire, which has consumed more than 200 homes, more than doubled in size Wednesday to more than 10,100 acres. Still, it appeared to consume only a few houses Wednesday, and stalled on the mountainside on the northeast side of Highland. The Grass Valley Fire, after destroying at least 113 homes in and around Lake Arrowhead, slowed significantly, allowing firefighters to get it 30 percent contained. “They’re taking it down considerably,” said Dennis Bouslaugh of the U.S. Forest Service. Authorities said they had largely contained many of the fires north of San Diego, and all five fires in Los Angeles County were 50 percent contained or more. The death toll from the most recent blazes may rise as authorities return to neighborhoods where homes turned to piles of ash, but displaced homeowners and authorities were relieved that early reports were so low. The San Diego County medical examiner officially listed six deaths connected to the blazes, but he included five who died during the evacuation who were not directly killed by the fire. In 2003, all but a handful of the 22 dead succumbed to the flames. Terry Dooley, who was ordered out of his home with his wife and three sons Monday, said authorities learned important lessons from Hurricane Katrina and the 2003 California fires that wiped out 3,640 homes and blackened 750,000 acres during a two-week period. “They learned how to get things done more quickly,” Dooley said as he waited at a roadblock Wednesday to return home to San Diego’s upscale, densely populated Rancho Bernardo area. In addition to the reverse-911 system, authorities also shut down schools, halted mail delivery and urged people to stay home if they were not in danger. In 2003, only 50,000 people were evacuated in San Diego County. This week, more than 500,000 people were ordered to evacuate in San Diego County alone. Unlike many of the poor neighborhoods flooded by Hurricane Katrina, the hardest-hit areas in California were filled with upscale homes, with easy access to wide streets. Less wealthy areas – including rural enclaves and horse farms that stretch through the mountains east of San Diego – benefited from easy road access and small crowds. Despite Wednesday’s progress, none of the six major blazes in San Diego County was more than 15 percent contained, and those fires threatened more than 8,500 houses. The top priority was a fire in San Bernardino County that threatened 6,000 homes and continued to rage out of control. This week’s fires have destroyed about 1,500 homes since they started late Saturday and triggered the largest evacuation in California history. The flames have burned about 674 square miles, across five counties, from Ventura in the north all the way into Mexico. Property damage has reached at least $1 billion in San Diego County alone, and President Bush signed a major disaster declaration for California. The president was scheduled to visit the region Thursday. On Wednesday, about two dozen people gathered at a police barricade in Rancho Bernardo, which was one of the hardest-hit areas, hoping to retrieve medications and belongings – or simply to see if their homes were intact. What awaited many was an apocalyptic scene: entire streets leveled, charred hulks of metal that once were cars sitting in driveways of homes with only chimneys left standing. House after house, 29 on one street alone, were reduced to piles of blackened concrete and twisted metal. At one point, police officers lifted a barricade into the neighborhood only to turn residents away several hundred yards down the road at a second barricade. Some of the homeowners cursed at the officers. “You let us in just to send us back out,” one angry man yelled from his car. Dooley knew his home was OK because his home answering machine still worked. Six of San Diego County’s 42 evacuation centers were full Wednesday but there was plenty of space at Qualcomm Stadium, home to the NFL Chargers, where 10,000 people sought refuge. People rested on cots that lined covered walkways circling the bleachers and quietly watched television as National Guard troops watched. There were no bathroom lines. “One happy consequence” of the 2003 fires is that people remember that fire can be very unpredictable, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Wednesday in an interview. “All but the most unlucky people can see the fire coming,” he said. “There’s no reason you should have loss of life, certainly for civilians.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I think they have all the documents, read them and saw nothing there.” The Brea Republican sold hillside land to Monrovia in 2002 and filed forms with the IRS claiming the sale was made under threat of eminent domain. The move allowed Miller to shelter millions of dollars in profits from capital gains taxes for two years. He used the money to buy land in Fontana, which he later sold to that city, and claimed the same exemption. A Washington-based watchdog group filed a complaint, accusing Miller of falsely claiming the land sales were made under threat of eminent domain. Fontana and Monrovia officials said this week they have not been contacted by investigators since the initial inquiries late last year. An official with Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, the group that filed the complaint last year, said the fact that investigators have not contacted the congressman does not mean he is not under scrutiny. Nearly a year since an investigation into Rep. Gary Miller’s business dealings surfaced, federal agents have yet to contact him. FBI investigators had asked Monrovia and Fontana officials for information about Miller’s land dealings, including requesting a video from a 2000 Monrovia City Council meeting in which Miller asked the city to buy his land. Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman, said she could not comment on an ongoing investigation. Miller said Friday that talk of his being under federal investigation is “stupid.” “The line that they have been not contacted by investigators is one used often by members of Congress to profess their innocence, but it certainly means nothing,” said Deputy Director Naomi Seligman Steiner. “There is more than enough evidence right now that suggests (Miller) is in real trouble. But the wheels of justice move slowly.” Staff writer Frank C.
