Has the US Mens National Team Plateaued

This view suggests the U.S. may have reached a new plateau. The performance of the 2002 team, for instance, is problematic from this vantage point. If the U.S. fails to beat Belgium on Tuesday, that means it will have gone three World Cups without equaling (much less improving upon) the 2002 team’s performance. Perhaps we’re left with the global soccer equivalent of the Atlanta Hawks: a team that will usually make the “playoffs” then lose in the first round.This might seem like a contrived reading of the evidence. But mapping the Americans’ trajectory from 1986 onward is also selective: It’s easy to make an upward pattern look more impressive by starting from what you know to be a low point.There’s a credible story behind each theory. Under the steady-improvement theory, the story is one of demographic and cultural trends abetted by some measure of self-perpetuating success (a positive feedback loop). Soccer has been a big youth-participation sport since the 1970s, but immigration from Latin America may be giving the U.S. even more young athletes who are interested in soccer. The occasional successes of the U.S. men’s national team, along with an increasingly popular domestic league (and improved television visibility for the English Premier League and Liga MX) may motivate some of these young athletes to play soccer professionally instead of transitioning into baseball, football or another sport.The punctuated-equilibrium theory suggests that the U.S. was badly underachieving its soccer potential for many years. Then it got its act together when it was chosen to host a World Cup: better facilities, more investment in the national team, a sustainable domestic league and so forth. But it was picking low-hanging fruit. It shouldn’t be that difficult for a super-wealthy country like the United States, which excels at so many other sports, to be half-decent at soccer if it tries.What’s more challenging is going from a country that sometimes makes the knockout phase to one that sometimes makes the World Cup semifinals — or beyond. It’s not clear that the U.S.’s wealth, or its athletic prowess, implies that it ought to be much more successful at soccer than it has been in recent years. For instance, we can compare each country’s GDP (taken as a natural logarithm) against its soccer team’s Elo rating as of June. There’s certainly some relationship, but it’s rough (soccer is a comparatively inexpensive sport). The trendline in the chart implies that a best guess for the United States is an Elo rating somewhere in mid-1,800s, almost exactly where it is today.The same story holds if we compare the number of medals each country has won at the Summer Olympics since 2000 (again taken as a natural logarithm5Because a number of countries have won no medals since 2000 — meaning that their natural logarithm would be undefined — I instead take the log of the number of medals won plus one.) against its soccer team’s Elo rating.There’s a high margin of error on these estimates. China’s GDP (and its Olympic medal count) is just a little less than the United States’ — but its soccer team has qualified for only one World Cup and has gotten worse in recent years. Germany also has a big economy and a big medal count — and its soccer team is great. The point is that the U.S. men’s national team is no longer underachieving reasonable expectations, as it was before the 1990s. Nor is it exceeding them. Perhaps what we’ve seen is about what we’re due to get in a populous, wealthy, athletic country — where interest in soccer is average, at best, by global standards.The success of the U.S. women’s national soccer team stands in contrast to that of the men’s. But soccer players are among the highest-profile female athletes in the U.S., suggesting that part of the problem for the men’s side is competition from other sports.The punctuated-equilibrium theory would imply that it may take some time for the U.S. men’s team to reach the next plateau. Perhaps an external catalyst would help: another American World Cup, a run to the World Cup semifinals, the emergence of an American soccer player who is recognized as among the best in the world. (Personally, I’d hope for him to be as brash as Cristiano Ronaldo, the better to spark headlines and stoke rivalries with other countries.) But it could be a long while before any of those things happen, and there could be some further delay before their feedback effects kick in.Or it could be that the steady-improvement theory is right. It also reflects a reasonable interpretation of the evidence. The data on youth interest in soccer is very encouraging, for instance.Tuesday’s game against Belgium will provide us with one data point — but just one. Unlike in the past, however, we might not need to wait four years for the next one. Instead, in 2016, the United States will host the Copa América Centenario, a special one-off tournament that will feature the best teams from both North and South America. It could serve as a preview of our soccer future. Playing at home produces the equivalent of an 100 Elo-point bonus — equal to eight years of improvement for the U.S. based on its 1986 to 2014 trajectory. If the U.S. will be ready to compete with the Colombias and Argentinas and Brazils of the world on neutral turf by 2022 and 2026, it should be able to do so on home soil in 2016.CORRECTION (July 1, 4:54 p.m.): A chart in an earlier version of this post mislabeled the Elo ratings vs. Olympic medal counts for China and Russia. The chart has been updated. For the United States, almost every recent World Cup match has been billed as the most important game in the history of the men’s national team. Its knockout-stage match against Belgium on Tuesday isn’t receiving quite as much hype.1The New Republic does describe the U.S.-Belgium game as the “most important sporting event in American history.” That’s apparently a joke, however. But a win would advance the U.S. to the World Cup quarterfinals for a Saturday afternoon match against Argentina or Switzerland. That would probably be the most-watched game in U.S. soccer history — the first World Cup quarterfinal that many American fans would ever see their men play live.2The U.S. advanced to the quarterfinals in 2002, but its game against Germany was played in South Korea at 7:30 a.m. Eastern time on a Saturday morning — not ideal viewing hours. The U.S. also advanced from its group to the semifinals in the inaugural World Cup in 1930, but that was when just four teams made the knockout stage.It’s tempting to say that these matches are the soccer equivalent of political “game changers” — much-ballyhooed events that seem exciting at the time but which rarely have as much lasting impact as the pundits claim. But it’s not unreasonable to feel as though every World Cup game is more important than the last. It’s a consequence of the long-term state of U.S. soccer.On the one hand, expectations are getting higher. The U.S. advanced from the group stage in 1994, 2002, 2010 and now 2014. Matches against England or Portugal or Germany are now thought of as opportunities rather than sure losses. On the other hand, the men’s national team has never quite had its breakthrough moment.When might the bar be raised? When might U.S. fans view a Round of 16 exit as a travesty and not a triumph?If you’re in your mid-30s, like me, the advance of the U.S. men’s national team might seem as inevitable as that of gay marriage. You’ll be just old enough to remember that the U.S. was once a soccer backwater. But you might not remember how long it took the Americans to get where they are today. The trajectory since the 1980s has always been upward:This chart shows the Elo rating for the U.S. in each World Cup year3Specifically, it shows the U.S.’s Elo rating as of the date of the World Cup final — whether or not the U.S. actually qualified for the tournament. For 2014, I’ve used the U.S.’s Elo rating at the end of the group stage. since 1986 — the last World Cup where the Americans failed to qualify, and the last one before 1988, when FIFA declared the 1994 World Cup would be played in the U.S.From this perspective, the upward trend has been extremely steady. In fact, other than the 2002 team arriving in the quarterfinals a little ahead of schedule, it’s been almost perfectly linear. Since 1986, the U.S.’s Elo rating has improved by almost exactly 50 points every four years.Imagine that the trend continues. Right now, the U.S. team’s Elo rating is nearly 1,850, which places it 15th in the world. Add another 50 points, and by 2018 it would be at 1,900 — somewhere around eighth or 10th in the world and near where Belgium and Uruguay and France are today. That’s a team that could be a dark-horse World Cup contender. By 2026, its Elo rating would be 2,000 — not far from where Argentina, Germany and the Netherlands began this year’s tournament. So in just 12 more years — in a World Cup that could possibly be held in the United States — the U.S. will be a global soccer powerhouse.Or perhaps not. Consider another look at the evidence, one where we run the numbers back further. For much of the 1970s, there was a lot of hope surrounding the growth of U.S. soccer, but the men’s national team repeatedly failed to qualify for the World Cup. In one year, the U.S. failed to win a single qualifying match. But let’s go back ever further, to 1950. This tells a different story. The men’s national team got worse from 1950 to 1958, bottomed out for almost 30 years with no sign of life, improved rather sharply in a concentrated period from 1986 through 2002, and has been fairly steady since.Yes, the U.S. has still gotten better by this reckoning — but it looks more like a case of punctuated equilibrium — a sudden change after years of stasis.4The so-called punctuated trend in the chart is drawn by fitting a regression with a dummy variable that is taken as zero between 1950 and 1986 and one between 2002 and 2014 and allowed to vary at a linear rate only in the intervening years. read more

The Historically Great Warriors Got Historically Crushed

Since the league expanded to a 16-team playoff format in 1984, top-seeded teams have won their conference about 55 percent of the time; unlike in sports that feature heavy randomness, it’s a surprise when the best team doesn’t win out in the NBA.But that doesn’t mean top seeds are invincible, as the Golden State Warriors found out Sunday night in Oklahoma when they lost 133-105. With the series tied 1-1, the Warriors were facing the most crucial game of their season — and the Oklahoma City Thunder absolutely shellacked them. Going back again to ’84, it tied for the 14th-worst defeat of a conference No. 1 seed in the playoffs: 6/7/98Jazz@Bulls3NBA Finals-420.1% 5/11/10Cavaliersvs.Celtics5East Rd. 2-32<0.1 6/16/00Lakers@Pacers5NBA Finals-330.3✓ 6/3/84Celtics@Lakers3NBA Finals-330.4✓ 6/14/88Lakers@Pistons4NBA Finals-253.5✓ 6/11/13Heat@Spurs3NBA Finals-360.2✓ Half of those 14 losses came in the NBA Finals, and six featured a No. 1 seed from one conference crushing its counterpart from the the other — not exactly comparable to Dubs-Thunder. So if you toss those out, Golden State’s loss is tied for the seventh-most-lopsided defeat by a No. 1 in the past 33 postseasons of conference play. (It’s also tied for ninth-worst among playoff losses by No. 1 overall seeds during that span.)The Thunder are a high-quality basketball team, perhaps far better than they appeared to be at various points during the regular season. But the degree to which they dominated the Warriors in Game 3 was stunning. According to the pregame Elo ratings (our pet metric for estimating each team’s strength at a given moment), there was a mere 1.1 percent probability that OKC would run up a victory margin of 28 or more points Sunday.1Based on a process similar to the NFL version I used here. We’ve hardly ever seen this incarnation of the Warriors destroyed so thoroughly, and never in a game that meant so much.Putting aside why it happened — yes, the Warriors had one of their worst (unluckiest?) shot-making nights of the season, but they also played some of their most porous defense of the year and looked out of sorts for long stretches of the game — Golden State’s Game 3 drubbing has left the team in trouble. Both opponents being equal, the team that wins at home in a 1-1 series goes on to win the series more than 69 percent of the time. And although we wouldn’t have considered the Warriors and Thunder to be equals before the West final tipped off, OKC has closed the gap considerably since then. (Plus, Draymond Green is at risk of being suspended for Game 4 after kicking Steven Adams in the crotch for the second time this series.) Now, our model considers the Thunder 64 percent favorites to make the NBA Finals.Plenty of historical teams who suffered similarly huge routs bounced back and won the series anyway, so all is not lost in Oakland. But the Warriors will have to regroup after a Game 3 performance that put them in an exclusive, unenviable club of vulnerable No. 1 seeds.Check out our latest NBA predictions. 5/24/87Celtics@Pistons4East final-262.2✓ 5/22/16Warriors@Thunder3West final-281.1— DATETEAMOPPONENTGAMEROUNDMARGINELO PROB.WON SERIES 5/19/88Lakers@Jazz6West Rd. 2-281.2✓ Source: Basketball-Reference.com 6/17/08Lakers@Celtics6NBA Finals-390.1 6/4/05Heat@Pistons6East final-252.3 5/21/92Bullsvs.Cavaliers2East final-260.2✓ 5/30/96Sonics@Jazz6West final-350.3✓ 6/3/92Blazers@Bulls1NBA Finals-330.8 read more

Berzins brothers to battle in Chicago volleyball match

When the Buckeyes step into Gentile Arena in Chicago on Saturday and senior outside hitter Mik Berzins looks at the opposing team’s bench, he will see two people he knows quite well. “I’ve grown accustomed to playing my brothers over at Loyola,” he said. “It’s a good rivalry.” Berzins’ brothers, Kris and Dainis, have made the family name synonymous with volleyball at Loyola University Chicago, just as their father paved the way for Mik at Ohio State. The tradition begins with OSU Hall of Famer, Aldis Berzins. The Olympic gold medalist and former outside hitter led the Buckeyes to four Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association championships and four NCAA Final Four appearances between 1975 and 1978. Like father, like sons. Kris, Mik and Dainis have played at the outside hitter position and have made strides within their respective programs. Even the youngest Berzins, sophomore Dainis, started in 21 sets last year and tallied 113 kills, according to Loyola’s athletic website. “We all really support each other and want to have the other one do well,” Mik said. “I’m not going to cheer whenever Dainis gets a kill, but I wish him the best.” Former all-American Kris Berzins amassed more than 1,000 kills and 500 digs in his career with the Ramblers, one of only seven players in school history to do so. After a year on the professional circuit in Austria, Kris returned to Chicago as an assistant coach for the 2012 season. Ramblers’ coach Shane Davis said he tried to recruit Mik, too. “I thought we had him,” Davis said. “He took another look at Ohio State unfortunately, but we definitely wanted him.” Mik said he chose OSU over Loyola because he could see himself succeeding in the versatile program. “I came in as a libero, and I got the opportunity this year, and a little bit last year, to play some outside hitter,” he said. “Ohio State was the best place for me to go.” Mik has helped propel the Buckeyes to an 11-4 record with 120 kills, 10 service aces and a 0.928 serve percentage so far this season. He also has the most career digs in school history with 787. OSU’s coach Pete Hanson describes Mik as a passer, defender and server, but not one to be distracted by the family feud that awaits him this weekend. “Mik does a great job for us,” Hanson said. “He’ll be in a good frame of mind in terms of Ohio State volleyball.” The Buckeyes are 28-13 on the series against conference rival Loyola, and are on a five-match winning streak. The No. 14-ranked Ramblers have fared better at home, however, with a 9-7 record against OSU there. Davis, who shared the MIVA Coach of the Year award with Hanson in 2010, said that he is most looking forward to “all the hype” surrounding the match. “The two teams, we have a lot of history together,” he said. The trio from Brinklow, Md., will reunite Saturday after OSU makes a stop in Romeoville, Ill., to face No. 7-ranked Lewis on Thursday. Both matches are set to begin at 7 p.m. read more

Opinion Ohio State shouldnt be considered top team after shaky start

Redshirt sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) tries to shake off a tackler during a game against Northern Illinois on Sept. 19. OSU won 20-13.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorComplacency.It’s a word to be scared of and to not be associated with.The bad news for Ohio State football: The word complacency describes the team’s play really well thus far in the season.After topping Northern Illinois 20-13 at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, the Buckeyes are 3-0. Though a win’s a win, the way this team won its first three games of the season isn’t championship football.“We are not the No. 1 team in the country. … We definitely have the potential to be, but not right now,” junior running back Ezekiel Elliott said.Elliott is right. This team should not be the No. 1 team in the country. The motivation isn’t there. The panic should start.The toughest opponent for coach Urban Meyer’s team is themselves. This is normal among championship teams. The hardest hurdle the year after a successful run is to not feel entitlement. This is poisonous in a locker room. And junior defensive end Joey Bosa’s tweet post-NIU might say it all.Hey everyone we were 2-1 this time last year…. Relax.. This trains about to get rolling— Joey Bosa (@jbbigbear) September 19, 2015OSU does have the talent to potentially repeat as College Football Playoff National Champions once again this season. To do this, however, the offense needs to sync better.After uncertainty of who should be under center coming into the season against Virginia Tech, redshirt junior Cardale Jones got the start in each of the first three games of the season.All due respect to Jones, as talented as he is, Meyer likely handed him the starting position because he believes the position belongs to him. After all, he won the championship, though redshirt sophomore J.T. Barrett appears to be the better quarterback with more experience.Come Saturday against NIU, the inexperience showed. He was benched after two early interceptions, giving way for Barrett to take most of the second quarter and all of the second half.“We felt like he gave us the best chance to move the ball down the field,” Meyer said of Barrett.But when asked about the quarterback position, Meyer was unsure.“I don’t know that right now,” he said. I haven’t had time to think about it.”The quarterback position needs to be solidified before OSU football can return to the level of performance it’s accustomed to.Meyer deciding on a starting quarterback to lead the team, and sticking with him, will give the players assurance. Having a familiar leader snap the ball consistently is key to minimize confusion and to rally a team. One voice is more transparent than multiple coming from all sides.Regardless of who Meyer decides to have at the helm of the quarterback position, both Jones and Barrett are not playing up to par.Jones has completed only 26 passes out of 46 for 334 yards with three interceptions in three games, and Barrett has completed 20 of 46 for 120 yards with one interception.This has to be frustrating for Meyer. He’s known for his offense stemming from strong quarterback play from his time in Utah with Alex Smith and in Florida with Tim Tebow.“I’m not OK with five turnovers and lacking execution and not being able to control the line of scrimmage,” Meyer said. “That’s a recipe for failure.”The good news for this team is its defensive secondary, which has caused five interceptions and recovered two fumbles. And it has only allowed 357 yards passing through three games, an average of 119 yards per game.Redshirt sophomore linebacker Darron Lee acknowledged the team’s defensive play this season on Saturday.“When the offense needs a minute to find their rhythm we know we have to go out there and do our job,” Lee said.The Buckeyes had doubters coming into the season, including Arkansas coach Bret Bielema who made what some call a “bold statement” a week ago about OSU having an easy schedule, and thus not earning its standing and prestige.The teams on OSU’s schedule receiving votes in the Associated Press poll are Virginia Tech, which the Buckeyes beat 42-24 and has two votes in the poll, and No. 4 Michigan State, which is scheduled to meet OSU in Week 12.Here’s the thing: If the Buckeyes are struggling this badly with non-conference games, Big Ten play will hurt even more.So once again, someone please hit the panic button. read more

Mens Volleyball Ohio State head coach Pete Hanson announces retirement

Ohio State head men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson will be inducted into the USA Volleyball Hall of Fame in Columbus on May 22. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsAfter 35 years as the head coach of the Ohio State men’s volleyball team, Pete Hanson announced his retirement on Thursday. In his storied coaching career, Hanson has led three Ohio State teams to an NCAA Championship — in 2011, 2016 and 2017 — has been named the National Coach of the Year three times and has recorded 712 career wins, the third-most in NCAA history. “I will certainly miss Ohio State and the volleyball program, but I will never forget it,” Hanson said in a release.Hanson has also been inducted into three Hall-of-Fame classes: the American Volleyball Coaches Association in 2015, the Ohio State Athletics in 2017 and the USA Volleyball in 2019. “Being in the Hall of Fame once obviously is a feat in and of itself. To do it three times is something just surreal and something crazy,” senior setter Sanil Thomas said. “I think what you wouldn’t expect is the same — I would imagine, the same amount of passion he brought day one he brings that passion day — a lot; it’s a lot of days. That’s why he deserves this more than anyone.”In Hanson’s tenure as head coach, the Buckeyes  won the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association regular season title 18 times, over half of the total seasons he had coached. In his 34 years, he has been awarded as the MIVA Coach of the Year 13 times. However, much of the impact Hanson has made is reflected in the players he coached. Hanson has coached 13 MIVA Player of the Year award winners, 17 players who ended up playing professionally and 17 players who competed for their national team. “The legacy of Ohio State volleyball was and has been built by all of those fine young men that wore the Scarlet and Gray,” Hanson said in a release. “I am forever indebted to them, as they helped to ensure that Ohio State volleyball remained one of the most respected programs in the country.” Hanson also made an impact off the court and into the classroom. More than 200 of his players have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors, and, in the past 10 years, 65 percent of his players have earned Ohio State scholar-athlete recognition. “His impact far exceeds the men’s volleyball program, and even Ohio State Athletics, making a positive difference to collegiate volleyball across the country,” Ohio State deputy director of athletics and men’s volleyball administrator Janine Oman said. “The development of young men has always been paramount to Pete, equipping them to lead successful lives.”But on the court, especially inside St. John Arena, Hanson made his lasting mark. In his tenure, Ohio State has recorded six undefeated seasons at home and one 42-match winning streak, the longest in Ohio State history for a head-to-head sport. “Pete Hanson’s Buckeye career embodied our mantra of ‘The People. The Tradition. The Excellence,’” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in a statement. “He’s found success on the court and molded young men off of it, preparing them for life after college. Pete leaves a lasting legacy at The Ohio State University.” read more

first_imgNew Swansea City signing Barrie McKay is looking to rebuild his career after joining the club from Nottingham Forest.The former Rangers winger is hoping to recreate his goal scoring form at the Ibrox Stadium with his new club Swansea as they prepare for life in the Sky Bet Championship.McKay has signed a three-year deal with the Swans after joining the club from Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.The winger found the back of the net 17 times for Rangers but struggled to replicate the same form at Forest scoring just five times in 28 appearances.“Being at Rangers was a good feeling for me the football we played at the club was very good as we got the club back into the Scottish Premiership,” he said according to BBC.Report: Sanches is on a collision course with Bayern chief George Patchias – August 21, 2019 Renato Sanches is apparently on a collision course with Bayern Munich chief after recent comments.According to beIN sports network, Renato Sanches has publicly criticised…McKay featured more than 100 times for the Glasgow based club and the highlight of his Rangers’ career came when he scored against great rivals Celtic in the Scottish cup semi-final.“I was a young lad when I got into the club’s first team. I was just 17 but I featured in a number of games for the club,” he said.“The goal I scored against Celtic was definitely one of my best and I hope to score a few more like that.”“I will try to play as many games as I can and provide as many goals as I can as well for this club.”McKay who has been capped once by Scotland could make his Swansea debut when the club face Sheffield United in the Sky bet Championship opener.last_img read more

Sherwood insists Jose is picking fights with the wrong people

first_imgFormer Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood insists Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been picking fights with the wrong people in this season.Mourinho takes his team to Stamford Bridge to face former club Chelsea on Saturday with the Portuguese gaffer under huge pressure following a disappointing start to the Premier League season.Before the international break, the self-acclaimed ‘special one’ claimed he was the victim of a “manhunt” following United’s 3-2 win over Newcastle after reports came out he would be sacked regardless of the result at Old Trafford.However, it is the first recent criticism of the club’s board, and some of their players, as well as his constant battles with the press, that has most undermined Mourinho, according to Sherwood.“Sometimes you can create your own fires,” the former Tottenham boss told Sky Sports’ The Debate.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“You have enough problems putting them out, but if you are creating them yourself, and then putting them out…“And at times I think he picks fights with the wrong people. You cannot pick a fight at Manchester United, it is an institution that football club. It is bigger than any individual.”“So why should you pick a fight with them? It is not going to work and Jose knows it has not been good enough.”“He is a winner, a serial winner, he wins everywhere he goes. He needs great respect for that, but what has happened in the past is in the past. Jose is still a football manager now and he needs to start winning things.”“He needs to win the Premier League for a club that has Man Utd’s stature.”last_img read more

Disney Rebrands FamilyFun

first_imgDisney Publishing Worldwide said today it is rebranding FamilyFun magazine into an integrated, multi-platform set of products, and is renaming the print edition Disney FamilyFun.According to group vice president and general manager Aparna Pande, it was important to more clearly connect the FamilyFun brand with the Disney name. “There is real value in uniting ‘Disney’ and ‘FamilyFun’ so that readers and advertisers immediately identify and benefit from our rich legacy and positive association with families.”Disney also said it will change the name of its U.S. consumer magazine publishing division to the Disney FamilyFun Group. As part of the rebranding, Disney expects the FamilyFun Group to roll out a number of branded initiatives this year, including a custom publishing division, a line of family cookbooks and a series of special interest publications, the first being a Halloween-themed book-a-zine.No “material changes” are immediately planned for FamilyFun’s Web site, Pande told FOLIO:. Pande joined Disney last summer after serving as general manager of Meredith’s Parenthood Group.In January, Disney said it would shutter three-year-old Wondertime magazine with its March issue. In February, Disney upped FamilyFun’s rate base from 2 million to 2.1 million.In addition to FamilyFun, Disney publishes 350,000-circ Spanish speaking quarterly Disney en Familia, which launched last fall.last_img read more

Cobrapost expose says DHFL involved in Rs 31000 crore loan scam

first_imgReutersIn what has been claimed to be India’s biggest financial scam, non-profit news organisation Cobrapost accused Dewan Housing Finance Corporation’s (DHFL) promoters of siphoning off Rs 31,000 crore from the public.The news portal made the allegation based on a sting operation headed by Aniruddha Bahal. Cobrapost made the claims at a press conference held in New Delhi on Tuesday, January 29. Bahal, lawyer Prashanth Bhushan, BJP leader Yashwanth Sinha, former Aam Aadmi Party member Neil Terrence and journalists Paranjoy Guha Thakurta and Prem Shankar Jha were at the press conference.How was the scam pulled off? CobrapostAccording to the report by the Cobrapost, the scam was carried out by getting loans sanctioned and then sending money to shell companies related to DHFL’s stakeholders – Kapil, Aruna and Dheeraj Wadhawan.The Wadhawans then rerouted the money to the companies directly under their control and the money was used to buy shares or equity in India, United Kingdom, Dubai, Mauritius and Sri Lanka. This was easy for the Wadhawans as they headed the finance division of DHFL and hence signed off on the loans.The shell companies created had a nominal capital of Rs 1 lakh. Most of the companies also have the same addresses and auditors.Cobrapost alleged that over Rs 21,477 crore of DHFL’s funds were transferred to the shell companies without informing the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. Most of the money was transferred on the pretext of loans financing slum development projects. The loans were transferred in a single installment.The Cobrapost article also states that the Wadhawans used some of the money to buy a Sri Lankan Premiere League cricket team. The money trail has disappeared into the dozens of shell companies they were pumped into and subsequently into companies associated with the Wadhawans.What was the BJP’s role in this?Cobrapost said that companies under DHFL reported its donations to the Bharatiya Janata Party. It allegedly received donations worth Rs 20 crore.The report further states that the party received Rs 19.5 crore between the financial years 2014-15 and 2016-17 from companies related to the Wadhawans – RKW Developers, Skill Realtors Pvt. Ltd and Darshan Developers Pvt limited.RKW Developers did not show any donations between 2014-15, the portal said.last_img read more

Superinsulated clothing could eliminate need for indoor heating

first_img More information: Po-Chun Hsu, et al. “Personal Thermal Management by Metallic Nanowire-Coated Textile.” Nano Letters. DOI: 10.1021/nl5036572 A team of researchers led by Professor Yi Cui, along with PhD student Po-Chun Hsu and others at Stanford University, have published a paper on the AgNW-coated textiles in a recent issue of Nano Letters.As the researchers explain, most strategies to reduce indoor heating focus on improving the insulation of the buildings, such as by using high R-value insulation and low-emissivity windows. However, a large portion of the energy is still wasted on heating empty space and inanimate objects. To avoid this waste, the researchers have used a new strategy called “personal thermal management,” which focuses on heating people. They’ve demonstrated that clothing dipped in a solution of metallic nanowires, such as AgNWs, achieves this goal by both providing passive insulation and allowing for active heating when connected to an external power source.The main advantage of the AgNW-coated clothing is that it reflects over 90% of an individual’s body heat (i.e., infrared radiation) back to the individual. This reflectance is much higher than even the warmest wool sweater, as the average clothing material reflects back only about 20% of body heat. This increase in reflectance is due to differences in the materials’ emissivity, which is a measure of heat radiation. Low-emissivity materials like silver, which has an emissivity of 0.02, emit less radiation and so provide much better insulation than high-emissivity materials like common textiles, which have an emissivity of about 0.8.Of course, wearing clothing made completely of silver would be impractical and uncomfortable, not to mention expensive. A main reason for this discomfort is that silver, like all metals, is not breathable. For example, Mylar blankets, which are made of aluminum and plastic, are extremely warm but are not vapor-permeable, causing moisture to accumulate on a person’s skin. The new AgNW-coated clothing, on the other hand, is breathable due to the nanowires’ porous structure. The large spacing between nanowires of about 300 nm offers plenty of room for water vapor molecules, which are about 0.2 nm, to pass through. The 300-nm spacing is still much too small to allow body heat to pass through, since human body radiation has a wavelength of about 9 µm and so interacts with the nanowire cloth as if it were a continuous metal film, and is reflected. Explore further Clothing coated in AgNWs would feel virtually identical to normal clothing because such a small amount of AgNW solution is required to achieve high reflectivity. Dip-coating cotton cloth into the AgNW solution adds a mass of just 0.1 g/m2, which would be less than 1 gram for an entire outfit. Only a small fraction of this mass is silver, so the cost would be relatively inexpensive. Using other metals such as copper, nickel, or aluminum, which have similar properties as silver, could further reduce costs.Besides providing high levels of passive insulation, AgNW-coated clothing can also provide Joule heating if connected to an electricity source, such as a battery. The researchers demonstrated that as little as 0.9 V can safely raise clothing temperature to 38 °C, which is 1 °C higher than the human body temperature of 37 °C.Variables such as outdoor temperature, length of the winter season, and home size make it difficult to calculate exactly how much energy a person would save by wearing AgNW-coated clothing. However, the researchers have calculated a rough savings estimate of 8.5 kWh of heating energy per person per day, or 1,000 kWh per year assuming that the heating system operates for four months per year. This estimate is based on the average person requiring 367 W of heating power, compared with 12 W required by the AgNW-coating clothing when actively operating. The researchers note that a 1,000 kWh savings in power consumption is equivalent to the power generated by a 2-square-meter solar panel. Plus, fabrication, installation, and maintenance of the solar panel would likely cost much more than the AgNW-coated clothing.When testing the durability of the AgNW-coated clothing, the researchers found that the clothing could withstand multiple wash cycles while maintaining its electrical properties. Surprisingly, the electrical resistance decreased after the first two wash cycles, possibly due to the removal of extra coating on AgNWs and an increase in packing density of the nanowire mesh, and the resistance stabilized after the third wash cycle.The researchers also fabricated and tested clothing coated in a carbon nanotube solution. However, although carbon nanotubes are conductive and therefore suitable for Joule heating, their high emissivity of 0.98 does not enable them to reflect body heat nearly as well as the AgNW coating.

Considering that 47% of global energy is spent on indoor heating, and 42% of that specifically for residential heating, such highly insulating clothing could potentially have huge cost savings.last_img read more

A buffet of Ballet

first_imgAll the dance enthuisiasts can head over to experience some great ballet performances as Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra is up with their 11th Festival of Ballets that kick started on 9 May. The first day of the festival featured the dance performance Meera. The performance brought up the glory lies in her ability to articulate through her poetry the turbulence that transpired in her life. Meera’s life seems to be an allegory for most women, that centuries later, her name lives on. Wherever she went, through the effervescence of her poetry, she spread the message of liberation and urged an inner awakening. The performance was choreographed by Shashidharan Nair and the music was given by Shubha Mudgal under the production and direction by Shobha Deepak Singh.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The second day of the festival (10 May) will feature the performance Shree Durga. The performance is choreographed by Shashidharan Nair and the vocal composition is by Shanti Sharma. The performance highlights that Durga and Kali are not vehicles of a bygone era but remain pertinent today. One reads daily about the atrocities on women. When the Gods give boons they themselves become victims of these boons and it is then that they invoke Shree Shakti; feminine power, to vanquish demons in society. Female power conquers over mindless demons of society. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixOn the third day (15 May), the festival will  present Karna. It is choreographed by Late Guru Krishna Chandra Naik and Shashidharan Nair. The music is given by Barun Gupta. Towards no other persona of the epic of Mahabharata do circumstances remain consistently so hostile. Karna’s life and times are frozen in their entirety and his fortunes into a perpetual predicament. This ballet is dedicated to all the Karnas natural and unnatural, who are denied the rightful place in the social milieu, seen in its correct perspective. Karna’s life has been so unfair that it immediately elicits sympathy. His life in the epic is resplendent with magnificent misadventures and acts of valour. The closing day of the festival (17 May) will be featuring Kumar Sambhava. The music is been given by Barun Gupta and the scripting is done by Neelabh. The act is directed by Shobha Deepak Singh. It is an endearing story of the demon Tarak, who enjoyed sacred protection in the form of a boon of invincibility from Lord Brahma, of which he took blatant advantage and wreaked havoc on earth. In desperation, mankind appealed to Brahma and the gods to save them from Tarak’s oppression and Lord Brahma said that Tarak could only be killed by the son of Lord Shiva and Parvati, with the intervention of Kamdeva, the god of love. Shiva and Parvati married. After a peaceful existence in the mountains, Kartikeya, their eldest son who was incubated in six wombs of celestial virgins, was born to allow the world to rejoice. Kartikeya was taught by Shiva. At the end of his training Shiva asked his son to lead the army into battle and rid the world of Tarak. After a ferocious battle, Kartikeya mustered all his powers and released a deadly bolt against Tarak, that instantly saw him crash to the ground, dead. And so, the darkness lifted from the heavens and earth and the gods and humans rejoiced. Kamdeva’s death and his wife Rati’s lamentation offer the poignant and sad reality of a tale, where good and evil coexist.Where:  Kamani Auditorium, 1 Copernicus MargWhen: 10, 15, 17 May Timing: 7-8.30 pmlast_img read more

FELLOWSHIP Artist Paula Wittner Arcosanti alumna

first_imgFELLOWSHIP Artist: Paula Wittner [Arcosanti alumna] Oil on canvas, 1978 Commissioned by Rus Adams in 1977, this oil was completed in February 1978. It’s first exhibition, in the Fall of 1978, was at the Cafe at Arcosanti, later the Bakery. In 1986, Paula named and signed it. The paintings whereabouts was unknown to Rus and Paula from late 1986 until July 2008, when it was located at Drake Station Trading Company in Prescott. Rus re-acquired it, and in June 2009 donated it to the Cosanti Foundation in honor of Paolo Soleri’s 90th birthday. January 5, 2011As we begin a New Year, many things come to mind, that we have been negligent or too busy to mention. Things such as the continued support that we receive from our alumni. First of all we want to mention Rus Adams, who donated this painting. Rus had the painting and frame restored and it now graces the cafe in the Crafts III building, here seen during the past Christmas party. For more information on the painting see our reports from September 15. 2008 and December 29. 2008. For more information on the art of Paula Wittner see our report on June 8. 2009.last_img read more

European net TV advertising revenues will increase

first_imgEuropean net TV advertising revenues will increase by 5.4% in 2012 to US$40.7 billion (€32.4 billion), according to new research from Informa Telecoms & Media. The uptick follows a 3% increase in TV advertising revenues in 2011 and one of 9.9% in 2010.
The big increase in 2010 was boosted by improving consumer and corporate confidence along with that summer’s World Cup finals in South Africa. The 2012 increase is also being driven by the Euro 2012 soccer tournament in Poland and the Ukraine, which starts today.“While economic growth for Europe looks likely to be flat in 2012, our research has found that most European broadcasters expect to post some strong 2Q and 3Q advertising numbers due to the Euros and then the Olympics,” said Adam Thomas, Informa’s media research manager. “A drop-off is expected in 4Q12 but the mid-year boost will be sufficient to ensure that TV advertising comfortably outperforms GDP growth.”Revenues from countries in Western Europe will account for US$30.1 billion of the total and those from Eastern Europe US$10.6 billion.The Informa figures are for net advertising after agency commissions, production costs and discounts have been taken into account.last_img read more

"I just dont know anybody who wouldnt want to have control over their time says Ben-YehudaA peculiar Vine floated around social media Monday evening following the grand jury announcement in Ferguson Mo The short video shows an Asian-American shopkeeper standing in his looted store with a hands-in-his-pockets matter-of-factness and a sad slump to his facial expression “Are you okay sir” an off-screen cameraman asks “Yes” the storeowner says dejectedly The clip is only a few seconds but it highlights the question of where Asian-Americans stand in the black and white palette often used to paint incidents like Ferguson In the story of a white cop’s killing of a black teen Asian-Americans may at first seem irrelevant They are neither white nor black; they assume the benefits of non-blackness but also the burdens of non-whiteness They can appear innocuous on nighttime streets but also defenseless; getting into Harvard is a result of "ones own merit" but also a genetic gift; they are assumed well-off in society but also perpetually foreign Asian-Americans’ peculiar gray space on the racial spectrum can translate to detachment from the situation in Ferguson When that happens the racialized nature of the events in Ferguson loses relevance to Asian-Americans But seen with a historical perspective it’s clear that such moments are decidedly of more colors than two VOTE: Should the Ferguson Protestors Be TIME’s Person of the Year Michael Browns death has several parallels in Asian-American history The first to come to mind may be the story of Vincent Chin a Chinese-American killed in 1982 by a Chrysler plant superintendent and his stepson both white both uncharged in a racially-motivated murder; like Brown Chin unified his community to demand protection under the law However most direct parallels have often had one distinct dissimilarity to Ferguson: they have not spurred widespread resistance nor have they engraved a visible legacy There is the story of Kuanchang Kao an intoxicated Chinese-American fatally shot in 1997 by police threatened by his "martial arts" moves There is Cau Bich Tran a Vietnamese-American killed in 2003 after holding a vegetable peeler which police thought was a cleaver There is Fong Lee a Hmong-American shot to death in 2006 by police who believed he was carrying a gun None of the three cases resulted in criminal charges against the police or in public campaigns that turned the victims memory into a commitment to seek justice One op-ed even declared how little America learned from Trans slaying While Ferguson captures the worlds attention why do these Asian-American stories remain comparatively unknown One possible answer could be found in the model minority myth The myth a decades-old stereotype casts Asian-Americans as universally successful and discourages others even Asian-Americans themselves from believing in the validity of their struggles But as protests over Ferguson continue its increasingly important to remember the purpose of the model minority narratives construction The doctored portrayal which dates to 1966 was intended to shame African-American activists whose demands for equal civil rights threatened a centuries-old white society (The original story in the New York Times thrust forward an image of Japanese-Americans quietly rising to economic successes despite the racial prejudice responsible for their unjust internment during World War II) Racial engineering of Asian-Americans and African-Americans to protect a white-run society was nothing new but the puppeteering of one minority to slap the others wrist was a marked change The apparent boost of Asian-Americans suggested that racism was no longer a problem for all people of color it was a problem for people of a specific color “The model minority discourse has elevated Asian-Americans as a group thats worked hard using education to get ahead” said Daryl Maeda a professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado Boulder “But the reality is that its a discourse that intends to pit us against other people of color And thats a divide and conquer strategy we shouldn’t be complicit with” Through the years that idea erased from the public consciousness the fact that the Asian-American experience was once a story of racially motivated legal exclusion disenfranchisement and horrific violence commonalities with the African-American experience that became rallying points in demanding racial equality That division between racial minorities also erased a history of Afro-Asian solidarity born by the shared experience of sociopolitical marginalization As with Ferguson it’s easy to say the Civil Rights movement was entirely black and white when in reality there were many moments of interplay between African-American and Asian-American activism Japanese-American activist Yuri Kochiyama worked alongside Malcolm X until he was assassinated in front of her Groups protesting America’s involvement in the Vietnam War like the student-run Third World Liberation Front united resisters across racial lines under a collective radical political identity WEB DuBois called on African Americans to support the 1920s Indian anti-colonial resistance which he compared to whites’ oppression of blacks Chinese-American activist Grace Lee Boggs who struggled as a female scholar of color found passion in fighting similar injustices against African-Americans alongside CLR James in the 1950s Though Afro-Asian solidarity wasn’t the norm in either groups’ resistance movements the examples highlight the power of cross-racial resistance and what hardships they shared as non-whites The concept of non-whiteness is one way to begin the retelling of most hyphenated American histories In Asian-American history non-whiteness indelibly characterized the first waves of Asians arriving in the mid-1800s in America Cases like People v Hall (1854) placed them alongside unfree blacks in that case by ruling that a law barring blacks from testifying against whites was intended to block non-white witnesses while popular images documented Asian-American bodies as dark faceless and indistinguishable a racialization strengthened against the white supremacy of Manifest Destiny and naturalization law Non-whiteness facilitated racism but it in time also facilitated cross-racial opposition With issues like post-9/11 racial profiling anti-racism efforts continue to uphold this tradition of a shared non-white struggle “This stuff is what I call MIH missing in history” said Helen Zia an Asian-American historian and activist “Unfortunately we have generations growing up thinking there’s no connection [between African-Americans and Asian-Americans] These things are there all the linkages of struggles that have been fought together” The disassociation of Asian-Americans from Ferguson not just as absent allies but forgotten legacies is another chapter in that missing history In final moments of the Vine depicting an Asian-American shopkeeper’s looted store the cameraman offers a last thought in their conversation that had halted to a brief pause “It’s just a mess” the cameraman says The observation however simplistic has a truth That as an Asian-American who’s become collateral damage in a climate often black-and-white he like all of Ferguson
