  • Hungary Down Greece 7-5 in Water Polo Semifinal

    first_imgBUDAPEST, Hungary – The stars have aligned and Hungary has delivered. Hungary men have done what the women could not and Hungary did it in style against a Greek team looking for the big night, coming back from 1`-0 and 403 down to lead at halftime, snatch a goal in the third, take a three-goal lead early in the fourth and stop Greece from scoring until two seconds remaining, FINA reports. It was a match for the ages; a truly dour, yet pulsating, clash between two of the world’s current titans. Konstantinos Genidounias started the scoring with a shot to top left from the point position. On the next attack Balazs Erdelyi delighted the packed house scoring on extra-man attack. It was veteran Norbert Hosnyanszky who brought everybody to their feet with a seven-metre helicopter backhand goal. Fancy doing that in a World Championship semifinal! Much like Tamas Kasas in the Sydney 2000 Olympic final when he struck from halfway with a show-stopping backhand. The near-unstoppable Ioannis Fountoulis drilled his 19th goal of the tournament from point into the top left on extra. Marton Vamos hammered in one from five metres. It looked good for Hungary until Genidounias scythed in consecutive goals, one on extra and the other from seven metres. Greece was back in the lead. It would be a long time before Greece tasted that sort of excitement. Late in the period Miklos Gor-Nagy sent in a bouncer that creased the bar and hit the back of the head of Greek goalkeeper Konstantinos Flegkas for the equaliser. On a timeout the ploy was to give the ball to centre forward Balasz Harai and he was sunk by his opponents, only to rise, turn and score with five seconds remaining to halftime. The third quarter was all about defence with Vamos gaining a second from the point, on extra. Norbert Hosnyanszky scored from the point at 7:06 in the fourth and there the scoring dried up as Greece became frustrated, had shots blocked by birthday boy Viktor Nagy and mainly chad problems threading the needle such was the fantastic blocking defence of Hungary. There was some consolation for Greece and that was Fountoulis, so exceptional this tournament, scoring from left-hand-catch position from six metres with just seconds remaining. Hungary was through and Greece will need to lick its wounds after such a fine effort on defence.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img

  • Infrastructure bank gives Via 71M for work on multibilliondollar project

    first_imgOTTAWA — A federal infrastructure agency is providing $71 million to Via Rail to help it in its plan to build dedicated tracks for faster, more frequent service in Ontario and Quebec.The details unveiled today show that some of the money will fund work to make sure that Via trains can seamlessly move between any new dedicated tracks and local transit systems in Montreal and Toronto.For Montreal, that includes running Via trains along the electric-rail system under construction, known best by its French acronym R.E.M., which the Canada Infrastructure Bank is also financing.The rail company wants to build a multibillion-dollar new network of dedicated passenger-rail lines so its trains will no longer have to yield to freight trains on borrowed tracks.The infrastructure bank money will be largely used for environmental assessment, consultations with Indigenous communities, and a technical and financial review to help the government make a final funding decision.The high-frequency rail project is expected to cost $4 billion and Via Rail is exploring ways to have a private investor pick up some of the costs.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

  • Alberta government to partially backstop new 2 billion bitumen upgrader

    first_imgCALGARY _ The Alberta government is providing a $440-million loan guarantee to help a Calgary-based company build a bitumen upgrader east of Edmonton.Value Creation Inc. says it’s ready to break ground on the $2-billion upgrader that would convert more than 77,000 barrels of diluted bitumen each day into medium synthetic crude and an ultra-low-sulphur diesel.Synthetic crude can flow easier through pipelines and the company says that would reduce the need for diluent or thinning agent while increasing pipeline capacity by up to 30 per cent. Notley said she’s unsure about the support the project would receive if another party were elected in the upcoming spring vote.“When we introduced this program … at the time the energy critic for the official Opposition referred to the businesses with whom we would be partnering or supporting as folks that were lining up at the trough,” she said.“That’s not necessarily a good signal, but it’s not black and white and I’ll leave it to them to speak to it.” Alberta’s official Opposition said there was nothing new in the announcement.“We agree that Alberta needs to pursue more upgrading, refining and petrochemical developments. The question is how best to achieve that, and we look forward to seeing a complete economic assessment from the NDP,” said Prasad Panda, energy critic for the United Conservative Party.He suggested the problems facing Alberta oil and gas producers will remain unchanged.“The premier told Albertans that a carbon tax on their daily living would secure so-called social licence for a pipeline. Albertans still have the carbon tax, but not an inch of pipe is in the ground.”center_img “With our proprietary technology we are able to first clean up this very nasty bitumen … such that we can achieve much lower capital costs, operating costs, energy costs and greenhouse emissions,” Columba Yeung, chairman and CEO of Value Creation, said Tuesday.Premier Rachel Notley said the loan guarantee for the Heartland Upgrader is part of her government’s strategy and is all the support the company will receive.“We’re just looking at the loan guarantee and … as you can imagine we’ve gone through an excessive amount of due diligence already. There would be much more due diligence that would go on between the letter of intent and the binding agreement being signed,” she said at a news conference.“Of course, we’d ultimately be looking at a number of conditions … before the guarantee would come in place.”Notley said the project is expected to create more than 2,000 jobs during construction and another 200 full-time positions once the upgrader is running in 2022. It was its advanced technology that made it an ideal candidate for support, she said.“It upgrades the bitumen so that there are more refineries in the world that can use it, which helps drive up the price for it. It reduces (the bitumen’s) volume to help with takeaway capacity, which we all know is a problem.”last_img read more

  • Commentary Ohio State offense regular season grade Carlos Hyde running backs score

    Offensive line: A This should be an A+, it should, but I couldn’t justify giving a perfect grade to the offensive line when it seems that without redshirt-senior left tackle Jack Mewhort, the Buckeyes are a different team. When Mewhort went down with an injury against Illinois, the Illini defense, which ranks 112th in the country in total yards allowed per game, began to bottle up a potent Buckeye rushing attack. Even with Hyde and Miller in the game, the departure of Mewhort hurt significantly for OSU, and it is never good to be heavily reliant on just one player. Still, this season, the offensive line has been perhaps the strongest unit on the team all season. With Mewhort in the game, senior left guard Andrew Norwell, redshirt-senior center Corey Linsley and sophomore right tackle Taylor Decker, OSU is in good hands. Even when redshirt-senior right guard Marcus Hall was ejected from the victory against Michigan, redshirt-freshman Pat Elflein came in and played well in the trenches. The ability of the offensive line is one of the Buckeyes’ top assets this year and could be the difference against a powerful Michigan State front seven. Junior tight end Jeff Heuerman (86) celebrates a touchdown during The Game Nov. 30 at Michigan Stadium. OSU won, 42-41.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAs the regular season wraps up and the No.2-ranked Ohio State football team (12-0, 8-0) prepares for the postseason along with a potential shot at the national title, here are The Lantern’s grades for the offensive units during the regular season. Quarterbacks: B It is hard to grade the quarterbacks too harshly when they have led the Buckeyes to their second straight undefeated regular season and a spot in the Big Ten Championship. But in the final half of the season, the passing game has taken a step back. Junior quarterback Braxton Miller was hot heading into the second half of the year, and managed to throw for more than 200 yards for four straight games in the middle of the year, but since his 233-yard performance against Purdue Nov. 2, Miller’s highest total is 160 yards through the air. As his passing game has slipped, he has also seen his numbers rushing sky rocket, tallying an average of 160.3 yards per game over the last three games of the year. With a big test in No. 10 Michigan State looming, pressure will be on Miller to keep up his great rushing numbers and pick his game up through the air to keep the undefeated season alive. Backup redshirt-senior Kenny Guiton did not see the field much in the second half of the season, but if his play in place of Miller when he was out with an injury is any indication of his ability, OSU fan’s shouldn’t worry when he comes on the field. Wide receivers and tight ends: C+ After a good start to the season, the receiving corp has had a rough go of it in recent weeks, partially because of Miller’s struggles through the air. After recording three or more catches in each of the first nine games, junior wide receiver Devin Smith has only managed one catch a game over the last three weeks. Although it helps that in each of the last two games that one catch has been for a long touchdown, Smith will need to find his midseason form against the Spartans to help the Buckeyes. Senior Corey “Philly” Brown has also struggled in recent weeks, only tallying two catches for six yards over the last two games. The lone bright spot for the Buckeyes recently has been the emergence of junior tight end Jeff Heuerman. With the exception of a no catch game against Illinois Nov. 16, Heuerman has been playing well lately, catching nine passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in OSU’s last four games. Although Miller hasn’t been at his best as of late, the wide receivers will also need to step up their games for the Buckeyes to be successful against Michigan State Saturday. Academically, OSU doesn’t hand out an A+ grade, but it is hard to argue that the Buckeye running backs don’t deserve the highest grade possible. Since returning from a three-game suspension that was the result of an incident at a Columbus bar in July, senior running back Carlos Hyde has been stellar and invaluable to the Buckeyes undefeated regular season. Since Big Ten play began, Hyde has averaged 156.1 yards per game on the ground, including 14 touchdowns. Hyde also tallied two games of more than 225 yards in OSU’s final three games, running for the third best total in school history, 246 yards, against Illinois and going for 226 against Michigan. Hyde is averaging the sixth most rushing yards per game and is 16th in the nation with 1290 total yards, and he is the first running back under coach Urban Meyer to run for more than 1,000 yards in a single season. Freshman running back Dontre Wilson also made an impact this season, scoring three total touchdowns, one rushing and two receiving, and returning kicks for the Buckeyes. Redshirt-senior Jordan Hall started the year as the feature back for OSU but took a backseat after a knee injury sidelined him and Hyde made his return. Hyde a faces his toughest test of the year Saturday against the Spartans, who sport the nation’s leading rush defense, but will look to extend his run of seven straight games with more than 100 yards.

  • ESM chief Recouping of AIB BoI costs either difficult or impossible

    first_imgTHE HEAD OF the Eurozone bailout fund – the ESM – has played down the chances of Ireland securing retroactive direct recapitalisation of AIB and Bank of Ireland.The Government had been hoping to unload the debt from the two lenders from its balance sheet, despite strong objections from other members of the currency area.During the summer, Eurozone finance ministers agreed to consider retroactive recapitalisation on a case-by-case basis — a move seen as a positive step in Ireland’s bid to recover the costs it has already run up by bailing out the two banks.However, any such decision would require backing from all seventeen Eurozone nations.“Member states of the euro area have said that [moving the government’s stakes in bailed-out banks to the bailout fund] will be either difficult or impossible,” ESM Managing Director Klaus Regling told the Wall Street Journal today.According to the paper,  Regling stressed that this didn’t mean the fund wouldn’t be able to inject capital directly into ailing banks in the future — but he said that Eurozone countries that contribute to the ESM  are concerned about using the option for problems arising from past crises.Read: Key meeting in Brussels to discuss whether AIB.

  • Tesco donates 60000 meals to charity through an app

    first_imgTESCO IS SET to become the first retailer in Ireland to donate all its surplus food to charity via Foodcloud.From October 2013 to February 2014, 18 Tesco stores donated almost 60,000 meals or 27 tonnes of food to 38 charities, including Don Bosco Teenage Care, Inner City Helping Homeless, Balbriggan Meals on Wheels, and Drogheda Homeless Aid.The programme is now being rolled out to the company’s 146 stores nationwide.Foodcloud is an app where businesses can upload details of their excess food. The service then texts a local charity, who in turn picks up the donation and shares it with those in need.The service was founded by Trinity students Iseult Ward and Aoibheann O’Brien in 2012 and has won a Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Innovation Award.Since partnering with the app, Drogheda Homeless Aid has reduced its weekly food costs by an average of 30%.John Walker, Duty Officer at Drogheda Homeless Aid said that Foodcloud has “contributed to a lessening of the pressure that we would normally operate under in relation to our food services”.“We have been able to reduce our weekly food costs by about 30% which has freed up scarce resources for other requirements,” Walker noted.‘Unprecedented’Co-founder Ward said that Foodcloud was “a fast and efficient solution to bring businesses and charities within the same communities together to make sure that no good food goes to waste”.She noted that the scale of the partnership with Tesco is “unprecedented” and called on any interested charities and retailers to register with the app.“Wasting food is a waste of money, a waste of valuable natural resources and raises moral questions where there are people who have too little food. Globally 30% of food produced is never actually eaten. In Ireland, we generate one million tonnes of food waste every year,” Ward stated.Christine Heffernan, Corporate Affairs Director at Tesco Ireland, described the service as “powerful and innovative”.“Even in the most efficient retail operations, there will inevitably be food surplus and we are delighted that through Foodcloud’s innovative app, we will be able to donate all our surplus food on a daily basis to people that need it.”Read: Have you got the skills to solve Ireland’s social problems?Read: Social entrepreneurs were honoured by President Michael D.

  • NASA Has Its Biggest Year Ahead of It

    first_img NASA has some big plans for 2017, and it could very well be the biggest year for the organization in some time. According to a recent article via Yahoo, NASA could be forging an increased partnership with private space programs and individuals with lots of money to bolster its most important goals, such as sending a manned flight to Mars by 2030.If it sounds like a lofty goal, it is, but it’s time for us to work in that kind of capacity. These decisions have been made in part by Donald Trump’s ideology as presidents-elect, such as moving NASA’s focus away from research on Earth’s climate and more toward space flight and other space and exploration-related endeavors. It’s predicted that several events will unfold in 2017, in fact, and here’s just a few of them.SpaceX Missions could be resuming as early as January 8th after a long period of rest when a Falcon 0 rocket exploded during testing. The company hasn’t been testing anything further since then, but we could be seeing it booting back up.NASA’s Cold Atom Laboratory launch could be nigh as well, as NASA had looked into sending the lab to the International Space Station in April 2017 to allow researchers the use of microgravity conditions. They could study quantum phenomena that are imperceptible on Earth, making space the best place to perform this kind of research. There’s also the idea that NASA could very well be cutting costs and heavy reliance on Russian rockets for American astronauts in the future if a partnership with Russia is dissolved soon.There’s also an interesting possible launch of a space-based internet that could require a company’s $1 billion in financing to begin researching (OneWeb, to be precise). This would mean an extremely important stride forward for the internet as a whole if NASA decides to proceed.It could be an extremely different and scientifically progressive year for the organization, and these are just some of the possible happenings that could occur. We’ll have to keep our eyes open going forward.

    first_imgMIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – At least two cars were broken into overnight across the street from Miami Beach’s LIV Nightclub.Club-goers got a surprise early Friday morning, when they walked and saw their car doors open with police standing outside.“The cops told me to come out, that there was a situation with the car,” said one of the victims, Jose Lazo. “I came running out and luckily when I got here, they informed me that somebody had broken in.”Police got a phone call from a security guard, about a man breaking into cars near 46th Street and Collins Avenue in Miami Beach.“I saw a gentleman walking through the parking lot, popping doors open,” said security guard Anthony Lopez. “I figured at first, I thought he was drunk until I see his other companion walking by and doing the same thing, and  I noticed they started banging into people’s car windows.”The burglars took off but didn’t get far. Officers caught up to the suspects just a few blocks away, near west 41st Street and Sheridan Avenue, after a short chase.“They got caught by undercover cops, going 100 miles an hour leaving the parking lot,” said Lopez. Police were able to recover all stolen items. Two of the victims got their suitcases and passports back just in time to make it to the airport for their 6:45 a.m. flight.“So relieved. This was the last thing I was expecting,” said victim Alexandra Matacchieri, “and I’m so glad the cops were on their stuff tonight.
