Liverpool destroy Man City to boost hopes of historic title triumph

first_imgCity’s defensive deficiencies have been much publicised without the injured Aymeric Laporte so far this season and they crumbled as Liverpool scored with their first two attacks of the game.But the visitors were furious with some justification at the move that led to the opening goal when a dangerous foray into the Liverpool box ended with the ball striking Trent Alexander-Arnold on the arm.Instead of City being awarded a penalty, the hosts broke down the other end and the ball fell to Fabinho on the edge of the area.The Brazilian is not renowned for his goalscoring, but when invited to shoot by a hesitant City back line, he arrowed a strike beyond stand-in goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.“Ask to the referees, don’t ask me,” said City boss Pep Guardiola on the controversial opener. “I would like to talk about our performance. It was one of my proudest performances as (Man City) manager.”The visitors had more of the ball and plenty of chances even in between Liverpool’s early blitz as Raheem Sterling headed wide Kevin De Bruyne’s in-swinging free-kick.But it was Liverpool who were ruthless as a pinpoint cross by Andy Robertson was headed home on the bounce by Salah.“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a goal like it,” said Klopp of his side’s second. “It was wild, intense from the first second. Liverpool Man City Liverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool took a huge step towards a first league title in 30 years by beating defending champions Manchester City 3-1 at Anfield on Sunday to open up an eight-point lead at the top of the table.Two goals in the first 13 minutes from Fabinho and Mohamed Salah gave the European champions a dream start before Sadio Mane’s diving header early in the second half sealed City’s fate.Bernardo Silva pulled a late goal back, but a third defeat in eight league games leaves City down in fourth, nine points behind Liverpool, and with a mountain to climb if they are to claim a third straight league title.“It’s nine points but there is a long way to go,” said Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.“It’s not important. Who wants to be first in early November? It’s important to be top in May.” “You could sense it was really important for both teams. We scored two incredible goals, but we had to suffer in moments because of the way City played.”– Damage done –City went on to enjoy the better of the play in the remainder of the first half, but the damage was already done.A purposeful burst forward by Angelino saw his deflected shot come back off the post before Sergio Aguero then dragged City’s best chance of a reply before the break wide after great work by De Bruyne.Any hope of a City comeback was eliminated six minutes into the second half when Jordan Henderson’s teasing cross was met with a diving header by Mane, although Bravo could have done better to stop the ball creeping over the line.RT if you feel like @VirgilvDijk right now pic.twitter.com/iK7ccod2vZ— LFC USA (@LFCUSA) November 10, 2019Guardiola’s mood was not improved when another VAR check went against his side after Sterling went down in the area under pressure from Mane.City finally got the goal much of their approach play had threatened when Bernardo Silva swept home Angelino’s cross 12 minutes from time, but it was too little, too late.“Today we showed in the most difficult stadium in the world the reason why we are champions,” said a defiant Guardiola.“There are three teams in front of us that have more chances to win the Premier League than us, but hopefully we can sustain this mentality and try it.”Liverpool agonisingly missed out on the title by a solitary point last season as City ended the season on a 14-match winning run to edge a titanic tussle.Guardiola’s men will need to produce something similarly spectacular in the months to come, but after quickly making up for the disappointment of the title race by wining the Champions League last season, Liverpool look destined to go one better this time round.Salah and Mané were both on the scoresheet vs Man City, but the intelligence and intensity of the defensive work carried out by the front three was integral to Liverpool’s [email protected]_archie breaks down how they did it. #LFC https://t.co/C4sgx2HeSa— Liverpool.com (@Liverpoolcom_) November 10, 2019Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

CDB warns Guyana about impact of political uncertainty on sector

first_imgOil and gas preparations…imperils immediate growth prospectsBy Jarryl BryanWith the prevailing uncertainty in Guyana regarding the elections date being fixed, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) is warning that political uncertainty can have a significant impact on Guyana’s preparations for first oil and the overall economy.This warning is contained in the bank’s country economic review of Guyana for 2018, the year in which a Government toppled after the no-confidence vote was passed for the first time in Guyana’s history.“Commercial production is due to commence in 2020. This will increase economic growth and provide windfall revenues for the Government of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana,” the report states, adding that the proposed Natural Resources Fund (NRF) is expected to help manage the risks associated with the burgeoning oil and gas sector. The bank explained that this includes minimising negative impacts on other traditional sectors.In the report, it notes that Guyana’s economy grew by 3.4 per cent for 2018. However, the banking institution warned of the risks to Guyana’s progress in preparing for the oil and gas sector and indeed, the overall macro-economic outlook if political uncertainty continues.“Guyana is on the verge of a sharp increase in economic growth, but immediate prospects partly depend on ending political uncertainty,” the report states. “In the November 2018 budget speech, the Ministry of Finance was targeting 4.6 per cent (Gross Domestic Product) growth in 2019.”“However, increased political uncertainty in early 2019 may dampen this momentum,” the bank added. “The National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited bond issue will push total public and publicly guaranteed debt above 60 per cent of GDP in 2019, but that ratio is projected to decline sharply after 2020.”ReformsThe CDB also urged more reforms to the doing business environment. According to the bank, this is necessary to ensure that the traditional, non-oil industries can become more competitive.“Business reforms are needed to improve competitiveness and facilitate inclusive growth. Although efforts are being made to increase linkages between the oil industry and the rest of the domestic economy, there is a risk that oil production could dominate exports and lead to exchange rate appreciation, which in turn could harm the competitiveness of other sectors.”“The NRF can help to manage some of these risks,” the CDB continued. “But business sector reforms will also be necessary. Improvements are needed in reducing energy costs, the speed of getting construction permits and trading across borders.”Retired Justice James PattersonThe World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index is one of its most comprehensive studies. In its 2018 report, Guyana was shown to have dipped, placing 126th in the global rankings. In 2017, Guyana was ranked 124th, while in 2015 the nation ranked 140th. Guyana saw an increase in the cost of starting a business, dropping seven places, from 92 to 99.A drop of 13 places, from 123 to 136, was also recorded in the area of paying taxes. However, the country rose in the ranks in areas such as dealing with construction permits, getting credit and protecting minority investors.The country was also commended for decreasing the time to transfer property by allocating higher resources and personnel and the adoption of a new code of civil procedure which the report notes make enforcing contracts easier by regulating time standards for key court events.Political uncertaintyArticle 106 (6) of the Guyana Constitution states: “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence”.106 (7) goes on to state that, “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”.Government was defeated by such a motion on December 21 (though Government is disputing this in the Appeal Court, after that very defeat was upheld by the High Court). That three-month stipulation is expected to expire next week, but there has been no agreement by the National Assembly to extend the timeline for holding elections, something stipulated by the Constitution.Since the passage of the no-confidence resolution on December 21, 2018, there have been calls from the international community and civil society for Government to respect the Constitution. This is something Government maintains it is doing but yet have not set a date for elections as is constitutionally mandated. President David Granger has claimed that he has to wait on the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) to provide clarity on its readiness and timeline for holding elections, though he expressed a desire to have them held this year.GECOM, on the other hand, is divided on this very issue. On the one hand, Opposition nominated commissioners are pushing for a timeline where elections can be held by April 30, 2019, when the current voters’ list expires.On the other hand, Government Commissioners on GECOM are insisting that house-to-house verification must be done – an exercise that is expected to delay already delayed elections by months.There have been many criticisms of what the Opposition and civil society has called a delaying tactic by the David Granger-led Administration. Guyana will slip into a constitutional crisis after March 21, 2019, if a two-thirds majority of Parliament do not vote to extend the constitutionally mandated elections.last_img read more

All About Dehumidifiers

An energy-efficient home in a hot, humid climate should have a tight envelope, thick insulation, energy-efficient appliances, and low-solar-gain windows. If you include these features in a new home, your air conditioner won’t run as often as your neighbor’s. That’s good.But there is a downside to the fact that your air conditioner runs rarely: during the hours that your house has no active cooling, it also has no active dehumidification. As a result, your indoor relative humidity is going to rise.This problem is fairly well understood. In hot, humid climates, a run-of-the-mill house has better control of indoor humidity levels than an energy-efficient house. If you live in an energy-efficient house in a humid location like the Southeastern U.S., you may need a dehumidifier.To figure out whether you need a dehumidifier, it’s worth considering the factors that raise indoor relative humidity levels. Some of these factors apply to all climates: indoor humidity levels rise when there are many people or pets living in the house; when residents take many showers; when there are lots of houseplants; when residents cook frequently; and when someone mops the floor.Other factors — some of which are counterintuitive — apply particularly to houses in hot, humid climates:One of the landmark studies looking at humidity problems in energy-efficient homes was a 2002 Building America study in Houston, Texas conducted by three researchers from the Building Science Corporation (Armin Rudd, Joseph Lstiburek, and Kohta Ueno).The researchers monitored humidity levels in Building America homes with excellent thermal envelopes — high levels of insulation, low levels of air leakage, and above-average windows — and compared the homes with a control group consisting of ordinary new homes.

Interoperability: The key to the emerging smart city

first_imgRelated Posts How IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … Tags:#Internet of Things#IoT#Smart Cities#smart city#UL Tom Blewitt Tom Blewitt, Director of Principal Engineers, ULWhile these types of initiatives are making positive impacts on their own, as Pittsburgh’s system continues to expand into other smart technologies, bundling and integrating these systems together will be necessary to take sizeable leaps in the efficiency of city operations. Enabling interoperability within and between systems is essential.Interoperability standards can encourage wider adoption of connected technologies. From a product manufacturer’s point of view, it is critical that expectations be fully understood for the compatibility of devices for city-wide adoption by asking questions such as how shall the devices operate under the specified real-world use cases, how shall they connect to a municipal network, and what provision is made available for updates once the technology is already deployed.Clearly, bringing an innovative technology to market is not enough. The innovative technology must work with the specific municipal infrastructure and should utilize a communication and security protocol that is trusted for citywide use. Furthermore, manufacturers need to plan for a competitive landscape in which multiple manufacturers have a hand in creating a city system — rather than the “walled garden” of one type of technology or one solution.From the municipality’s point of view, it is critical to see what the technology does and how it will operate in the field, whether it will be reliable and resilient, before making an investment. Take lighting as an example. On average, most cities exploring smart lighting will plan for 75,000 new or retrofitted light structures, which makes smart city lighting a hefty investment. Just as consumers may not invest in a car before a test drive, municipalities should not move forward with mass deployment simply on performance claims.Municipalities first need to understand how connected lights will operate under local conditions and how reliable and resilient they are. In order to do this, many are opting for trial deployments — installing lights in a representative small-scale area to test the technology before making a larger investment.A recent example is a successful twelve-month trial that Australia completed across Brisbane, Ipswich and Townsville — deploying 200 LED street lights with sensors. Addressing interoperability of the hardware and communication / security protocols sooner rather than later will help speed up additional deployments after the trial phase.  Having a proactive strategic plan for municipal interoperability increases the probability of success.Moreover, having interoperability standards in place also can contribute to gaining citizens’ trust in smart city technologies. Consider electric vehicles. Columbus, winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart Cities Challenge, has plans to deploy electric self-driving shuttles.There are standards that exist to ensure that the electric vehicle battery management system performs, but what about when it comes to integrating with the road condition sensors that these shuttles might interact with? Or the potential demand of a soon-to-be-developed transit hub that they are planned to run out of? For smart technologies, it’s a bit more difficult to integrate performance when they are still in development. Thinking not only about the immediateSee also: Can Seattle’s silo-busting keep it from becoming a “dumb” smart city?Think about future interactions of technologyThinking not only about the immediate application, but also how the technology could or should interact with another piece of smart technology, is critical to successful interoperability of smart municipal system. Attention must be paid to the contemplated “big picture” that all of these technologies will eventually “plug into.”The foregoing challenges are not trivial but, when solved, will have great upside potential.  Unfortunately, interoperability of technologies can, however, open up vulnerabilities for the smart city. A road sensor producing bad or false data to an electric vehicle potentially turns a smart city innovation into a potential safety hazard. If there is an unsecured operating system on even the most innocuous smart city wireless device, it can become an inadvertent unsecured gateway into a more secure system.According to a recent survey from Tripwire, 98 percent of government IT professionals believe smart cities do not have any protection from cyberattacks today, and 12 percent believe transportation systems are the most vulnerable. There is no question that cybersecurity must be addressed for smart city technology to thrive, but one of today’s challenges is determining what level of protection is required. There is still much work to be done to establish widely accepted expectations of what a secure, interconnected device shall be.Without interoperable components that leverage standardization so each work seamlessly with one another, a smart city cannot flourish and achieve its true potential. Today, individual systems are deployed — smart lighting, road sensors, smart meters, etc. — each working largely to fulfill a particular objective, but integrating these technologies in a municipal macro-system and doing so safe way is what will successfully lead to a brighter future for urban life around the world. How Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… Smart city technologies continue to experience rapid growth, both in the development of new devices and their applications within the city environment. Globally, cities’ investment in Internet of Things (IoT) technologies will increase by $97 billion from 2015 – 2019. In order for these investments to realize a return, innovators, manufacturers, and policymakers need to work together to first solve one of the most complex challenges that faces smart city development: interoperability.See also: Kansas City likes sharing its smart city data so other cities benefit tooAs the world continues to become increasingly interconnected, technology no longer revolves solely around the pure innovation and efficacy of a single product operating alone in a silo. Technology often must now operate within a connected ecosystem to more fully realize its value.Performance within a connected ecosystem, with many and diverse players, comes with interoperability expectations and therefore challenges that must be addressed before mass deployment occurs — especially when applied to urban environments.More specifically, while cities may look to implement one technology at a time, the goal of a smart city is to have an over-arching ecosystem of different technologies that collectively improve the efficiency, security, safety and sustainability of a city. Today’s smart city is still highly segmented. There are IoT products for energy storage, transportation, utilities, sustainability and indoor air quality – to name just a few.Looking at PittsburghCities like Pittsburgh, a place that has become a poster child for smart city pilot projects in the United States, are deploying independent projects – centralizing remaining a future goal. The city has a partnership with the United States Postal Service and Carnegie Mellon University to improve road safety by detecting surface cracks and potholes through cameras mounted on trucks. The city also has improved bridge safety by assessing vibration levels through sensors mounted on vehicles. To enable continuous navigation services, Pittsburgh has installed beacons in city tunnels with the navigation app, Waze.

Photo: PTIIn all, India’s medal tally from the tennis event stood at a disappointing four after starting as favourites in at least three of the five events in the debut year of the sport in the Games.Jones, ranked 234, put up a gallant fight in the first set and never looked like one who is yet to win his first match on the ATP tour but was never the same in the second set, in the start of which he encountered a knee problem.advertisementAt 15-15 in the opening game of the second set, Jones ran to reach out for a ball and hurt his left knee in the attempt.Although he came back after a short treatment but was not the same force as spate of errors marred his game and chances as well.Somdev was up 5-0 in no time but then let Jones get on board while serving for match. He though sealed the gold medal when Jones hit another long forehand.Somdev fell on his back in joy and got up amid thunderous applause. The summit clash lasted one hour 27 minutes.Defeats of the pairs of Paes and Bhupathi and Paes-Sania in team events badly hit India’s chances of dominating the tournament, from where several top players had pulled out.Sania contributed two medals in four by winning a silver in women’s singles and a bronze with Rushmi Chakravarthi in women’s doubles.–with PTI inputslast_img read more

It was obvious. We feel somewhat defrauded. I don’t understand why it wasn’t viewed again on VAR.“We knew that Roma were in a difficult situation psychologically and wanted to start strong to take advantage of that.“Football is a fast-paced sport and it is essential to always be concentrated, as the smallest errors can make a big difference, especially inside the penalty area and on set plays.“We had a lot of scoring opportunities and attacking moves, but our final ball wasn’t always correct. I think we lost the game five seconds from half-time, as we were caught in possession, they went on the counter and equalised.“We knew Roma were playing a new system and they hadn’t practiced it much, so inevitably their preventative marking and defensive movements weren’t well-oiled and we tried to take advantage.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
