Tour of Qatar: Stage 5 Report. Boonen Powers to Second Stage Win

first_imgTom Boonen took his second stage win in Qatar today, to cement his position as the race’s pre-eminent sprinter.Another long, fast lead-in to the stage finish, punctuated by identikit Qatari roundabouts, saw a long-term split reeled in by the leading group. Liquigas, who had three riders in the small break, had been going all out to keep ahead of the chase. Yet they were caught by the implacable peloton at around the 1km-to-go mark.Then, all hell broke loose as Katusha’s Danilo Napolitano spearheaded the group charge. Theo Bos broke early, only to be reminded that track pace does not easily translate to long road sprints. He should come away from Qatar with some valuable lessons on reining himself in until the last 100m, as he again blew up, this time leaving Boonen, well-marshalled by his Quickstep team-mates, to take first place in front of Napolitano and late arrival Edvard Boasson Hagen of Team Sky.Boonen, more than anyone, must be regretting letting the stage two break succeed, which saw Wouter Mol and Geert Steurs (TopSport-Vlaanderen) gain more than two minutes on their rivals. But for that, Boonen would surely be in line for a fourth Tour of Qatar win. As it is, Mol, who is riding well, looks favourite to take the Tour, nine seconds in front of Steurs and 1’45” ahead of Boonen in third place.last_img read more

Science Still Doesn’t Understand Video Games

first_imgPacific Standard:Last spring, Gunwoo Yoon, a doctoral student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, recruited 194 undergraduates and tasked them with blasting their way through a Space Invaders-style video game. After five minutes of play, he gave each student a cup filled with chocolate or chili sauce. Give it a taste, he said, and spoon some onto a plastic dish for the next participant. That person will have to clear the plate.Yoon told everyone the game and food components of the experiment were unrelated, but this was a lie. Under the guise of collecting separate reviews of the game and foods, he was looking for the answer to a hotly debated research question: How do video games shape who we are? He designed his game to assign each student randomly to one of three characters: Superman, Voldemort, or a nondescript circle. Superman and Voldemort had been pretested as representations of the most archetypal hero and villain; the circle was a control. Just five minutes of play as an icon of good or evil, Yoon predicted, would sway the amount of food the students served each other (though the food wasn’t actually passed on).Read the whole story: Pacific Standard More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Suburban concourse open

French Transport Minister Jean-Claude Gayssot and SNCF President Louis Gallois joined ceremonies at Paris Nord on November 21 to mark the completion of a new suburban concourse. As part of a Fr257·5m programme to rebuild the suburban section of the station, work began in 1997 to dig a light well and build a new glass roof in the style of the 19th century original. Renovation work is still underway on the former suburban annexe along the Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis above the RER through platforms.SNCF is planning to spend Fr2bn on renovating its other main line stations in Paris, with retail facilities to be developed at Saint-Lazare, Lyon and Austerlitz read more

One AL Central Trade Prospect the Indians Might Have Looked At Is Staying Put

first_imgAs the clock ticks towards the end of July, there’s still plenty of speculation about the Indians desire to grab an outfielder or a player in general to improve the team.While Adam Jones of the Orioles is the name most closely associated with the Indians, there’s one darkhorse candidate whose name was mentioned more than once, but now it appears that player isn’t going anywhere.Kansas City Royals second basemen/outfielder Whit Merrifield. The youngster playing in Kansas City is a player the Indians know all too well, hitting .302 with 21 steals and is still only 29 years old. He’s also got a contract that the Indians would have loved, as he’s only making $569,000 this season, and could not be a free agent until 2023. Friday Royals GM Dayton Moore said ‘forget it’ when it comes to thoughts of moving Merrifield, saying Kansas City isn’t thinking about dealing him at the deadline. Jon Heyman tweeted out today Moore’s comments regarding Merrifield and him staying in KC. KC GM Dayton Moore on whether he’ll trade young star Whit Merrifield: “I can’t predict the future. But certainly won’t be traded at the deadline. We need him in our city and on our team.” Merrifield responded (on @MLBNetwork) that he loves KC and the Royals org.It was a long shot that the Royals would have dealt with the Tribe without trying to fleece their farm system out of a number of big prospects, but getting a player with that many years of control had to be appealing for the Indians. While it might just be Moore trying to drive up the price for Merrifield, for now the Indians look like they are back to looking at other options to try and help their team with four days left till the deadline to make a deal without going through waivers.

Germany wary of Algeria threat

first_img “But tournaments are marathons, not a 100-metre sprint. Many nations in the past have won their first three games, and then lost their fourth. Algeria: M’Bohli, Mandi, Halliche, Bougherra, Mesbah, Medjani, Bentaleb, Feghouli, Brahimi, Djabou, Slimani.  Germany: Neuer, Boateng, Mertesacker, Hummels, Howedes, Schweinsteiger, Lahm, Kroos, Ozil, Muller, Gotze.  Sport EN “There’s been lots of light, but also plenty of shadows; some good things, but also things which didn’t work,” he said. England, Italy, Spain and Portugal were all sent packing at the group stage.  “I’ve rarely seen a team defend so vehemently, but still attack with purpose. Their whole country is euphoric, so we’re up against a strong opponents.” Lukas Podolski will not be available for Germany because of a muscle problem, but everyone else is fit. “If anybody thinks or believes – and I think this is a feeling among the general public – that Algeria are easy opponents and that we can already start thinking of the next round, then they’re making a huge mistake. “We’ve not reached our limit yet, and now the knockout phase begins, the decisive games are here. Algeria have no injury worries as they look to upset the odds and make it through to the quarter-finals.  “We’ve seen it all before. A team’s got to be able to raise their game all the time. If you can manage that, then that’s a masterstroke.” “I took a look at Algeria yesterday for an hour and I know we’re up against a very compact side who run a lot and are aggressive. “We won our group, which was our primary objective, so we are happy, but we are also self-critical and we know that we can play better. Germany are firm favourites to progress at the expense of Algeria but manager Joachim Low is worried because of a tournament which has seen many big sides eliminated. Low says Germany are not easy opponents and his side need to step up a level.  “Personally, I cannot remember a group stage in which so many of the favourites were knocked out,” Low said at a press conference. “We must remain focused and on our toes because any complacency will be punished.

Unai Emery keen to use Auba influence to prise Dembele away from Barcelona

Powered by Firework The Gunners are going to snatch Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona in the winter transfer window. The Catalan Giants have brought in Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund in the previous winter transfer window with a huge transfer fee worth £105 million. However, the current situation of Ousmane Dembele at Barcelona is not looking very much promising and that’s why the club management will wish to sell the player as soon as possible.Advertisement The French winger did not appear in the training session of Barcelona ahead of the match against Real Betis. According to him, it was stomach ache; however the doctor of the club did not find anything abnormal. Ousmane Dembele was dropped from the squad of Barcelona against Real Betis. In this situation, now it will be difficult for Ousmane Dembele to get into the starting lineup of Barcelona under the management of Ernesto Valverde. Advertisement At this moment, the club management of Arsenal will try to this star footballer with the contact of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. Aubameyang was the teammate of Ousmane Dembele at Borussia Dortmund and the relationship between these two players could play a key role in this signing. Barcelona can reduce the huge transfer fee of this player in this situation and the contact of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang will surely go in the favour of the Gunners.
