Ohio State answered one big question Wednesday among several uncertainties about the upcoming 2011 football season: Who will coach while Jim Tressel is suspended? Luke Fickell. OSU announced Wednesday that co-defensive coordinator and linebacker coach, Fickell, has been promoted to assistant head coach. Fickell will serve as interim head coach during Tressel’s five-game suspension to start the season. Fickell will retain his role as linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator, OSU athletic director Gene Smith said in a press release. “I am humbled and excited about the opportunity,” Fickell said. “I’m truly proud to be able to stand up here and accept this role.” Fickell spoke to reporters, but offered few details on how the coaching roles would change for next year. “We coach by committee. It never has been, never will be about one person in particular,” Fickell said. “This is still Coach Tressel’s team.” Fickell spoke about the struggles that will come along with Tressel’s five-game absence. “It will be difficult,” Fickell said. “We have to know whose team it is. It’s our team. It’s the seniors’ team.” Tressel acknowledged that it will be hard. He said OSU deserves his time 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “This year,” he said, “it may be 24/6.” Fickell is a Columbus native and a 1997 graduate of OSU. He played nose guard for the Buckeyes from 1992–96. He redshirted his first year and started the remaining four. Fickell said he was honored to have this kind of opportunity at his alma mater. This is Fickell’s 10th year on staff at OSU, with his responsibilities ranging from overseeing the punt team to being co-defensive coordinator. “A final version of Fickell’s updated contract has not been completed,” the university said in a press release. The university suspended Tressel for five games for not reporting known NCAA violations to superiors. Terrelle Pryor and four other players received improper benefits by selling memorabilia and receiving discounted tattoos in 2009. Athletic department spokeswoman Shelly Poe said OSU is awaiting the results of an ongoing NCAA investigation, and no questions regarding the investigation could be answered. Poe also acknowledged that the university has become aware of allegations from an HBO “Real Sports” report that former recruit Anthony McClover said he received sexual favors while on an official team visit in 2003. Poe would not say whether OSU would be investigating this and that said the university will not comment on the matter until more information is known. Tressel took the opportunity at the spring practice press conference to again publicly apologize. “The largest regrets I’ve had, have been when I’ve disappointed people, when I’ve let people down,” Tressel said. “The mistakes I’ve made are very disappointing. Certainly, I‘m sorry for that. Tressel said he has received encouragement from many people throughout the ordeal. “The strongest inspiration I’ve gotten has been from our tremendous administration, our staff and most especially, our team,” Tressel said. OSU will begin spring football practice today, and Tressel said he is looking forward to how the new team is going to look. “We’re excited that spring begins tomorrow. We begin that focus on these 2011 Buckeyes,” he said. “It’s going to be a little different team; there are a lot of new faces.” read more

first_imgDubai International Airport continued to be the world’s busiest airport in 2016 with traffic of 83.6 million passengers, even though the number fell short of the estimated 85 million passengers, Dubai Airports authorities said on Tuesday.Also read: Demonetisation did not affect foreign tourist arrivals in DecemberAnnual traffic rose 7.2 percent in 2016 on account of new routes launched and an expansion of existing markets. India remained Dubai’s single largest destination country in 2016 with 11.4 million passengers, up 10.1 percent. Indian carriers such as Jet Airways, SpiceJet and Air India also started new services to Dubai, while Nepal Airlines and Russia’s Rossiya Airlines also started flights to the Gulf destination. The airport is expected to have 89 million passengers in 2017, 6.5 percent more over 2016’s. Paul Griffiths, the CEO of Dubai Airports, said that the figure would show Dubai is “closing the gap on Atlanta and Beijing for the top spot in overall traffic.” Dubai International Airport overtook London’s Heathrow as the world’s busiest airport for international traffic in 2014. The addition of 11 new passenger destinations by local carriers, including Emirates and flydubai, lifted passenger traffic through Dubai airport, the operator said. On January 22, Dubai Airports said that passengers travelling through Dubai International Airport (DXB) will be treated to live performances from CATS the Musical as part of its ongoing initiative #musicDXB. Selected cast members from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s globally-renowned musical – running at Dubai Opera from January 16 until January 28 – will perform two shows for #musicDXB on January 24, at 1 pm (B-Gates) and 2.15 pm (A-Gates) at the airport. Performers in the shows will include Joanna Ampil, a popular musical theatre actress from the Philippines. According to the data released by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, India’s civil aviation regulator, last week, Air India, IndiGo, SpiceJet, Jet Airways, Go Air, AirAsia India and Vistara flew about 95.2 lakh (about 9.5 million) passengers during December last year, an increase of 23.10 percent over the corresponding month in the previous calendar year. In full-year 2016, domestic carriers flew about 998.88 lakh passengers between the January to December period, while 810.91 lakh passengers flew in the same time period in the previous year (2015).last_img read more


first_imgDonald TrumpUS president Donald Trump said Monday that a bomb attack by a 27-year-old from Bangladesh on New York’s subway system underscored the “urgent need” for Congress to enact immigration reform.Three people were slightly injured after the attacker’s pipe bomb exploded only partially, while the suspect was sent to a hospital with apparently severe burns and wounds on his torso and hands.“First and foremost, as I have been saying since I first announced my candidacy for president, America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people to access our country,” Trump said in a statement.He added that the suspect, identified as Akayed Ullah, had entered the country through “extended-family chain migration,” a system the president is seeking to end that allows families to sponsor relatives to come to the United States.He also cited his controversial travel ban on the entry of nationals from eight countries-six of which have Muslim majorities-as “one step forward in securing our immigration system.”Other measures Trump said he hoped Congress would pass included “increasing the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, enhancing the arrest and detention authorities for immigration officers, and ending fraud and abuse in our immigration system.”Trump also reiterated his call for terror convicts to receive “the strongest penalty allowed by law, including the death penalty.”He had previously called for the death penalty for Sayfullo Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan who killed eight people and injured 12 in an 31 October truck attack in New York.last_img read more


first_img(Phys.org)—Researchers have shown that tomato pulp dissolved in water can eventually be turned into a powder of nanoparticles containing carbon dots with diameters of less than 5 nm. Like all carbon dots, one of the main characteristics of the tomato-sourced carbon dots is an intense fluorescence, which may lead to applications in imaging and sensing. Journal information: Nanotechnology More information: Weijian Liu et al. “Highly crystalline carbon dots from fresh tomato: UV emission and quantum confinement.” Nanotechnology. DOI: 10.1088/1361-6528/aa900b The researchers, led by Jinping Wang at Qingdao Agricultural University, have published a paper on the synthesis of carbon dots from tomato in a recent issue of Nanotechnology.Carbon dots are a new class of fluorescence nanomaterial that researchers are investigating as a possible alternative to semiconductor quantum dots and organic dyes. Because they are so new, the quantum mechanisms underlying their fluorescence are still not well understood. Carbon dots can come from many different sources, from carbon nanotubes to various kinds of biomass, such as fruits, vegetables, and flowers, and dots from different sources exhibit different fluorescence properties.An advantage of using tomatoes as the source of carbon dots is that tomatoes are inexpensive and the process is relatively simple. Basically, fresh tomato is chopped into pieces, crushed to a pulp by a tissue compactor, dissolved in water, heated in a microwave, centrifuged to remove any large particles, and then filtered by dialysis, leaving behind a solid powder of nanoparticles. Although the process is simple, the researchers showed that it still has the potential to produce high-quality carbon dots.One of the most important results of the new study is the UV fluorescence properties of the carbon dots can be controlled due to the quantum confinement effect, which is not often the case with carbon dots sourced from biomass. Here, the researchers demonstrated that, by adding certain organic compounds (ethylenediamine (EDA) and urea), they could control the size and tune the fluorescence of the nanoparticles formed from the tomato pulp.”Fresh tomato-sourced carbon dots tuned by urea can emit fluorescence in the UV region due to the quantum confinement effect,” Wang told Phys.org. “Our future research plan is to obtain red emissive carbon dots using biomass as precursors.”To illustrate the potential applications, the researchers evaluated the carbon dots for their use as staining agents for bioimaging fungi, and also as sensors for vanillin, which has applications in the biofuel industry. The researchers demonstrated that the carbon dots were highly biocompatible with the fungi and became brightly illuminated when excited by a laser. In the case of vanillin sensing, they showed that the vanillin quenches the fluorescence of the carbon dots, with the amount of quenching being proportional to the vanillin concentration. The researchers plan to further investigate these applications and others in the future. Researchers transform fresh tomatoes into three types of carbon nanoparticles.

first_imgUK pay TV provider BSkyB could be forced to give rival over-the-top service providers access to any of its customers who can receive its Anytime Plus subscription video-on-demand service under proposals outlined by the Competition Commission.As part of its investigation into the market for movies on pay TV, the commission has also recommended that Sky should be forced to publish the expiry date of its contracts relating to first subscription pay TV window rights with the six major studios.The first remedy, concerning OTT providers’ access to Sky’s Ethernet-connected set-top base, would follow the principle that currently requires Sky to make its satellite platform and EPG available to third parties. This remedy would allow those providers of Internet-distributed SVOD movie services which meet certain qualifying criteria to gain access, via Sky’s Ethernet-enabled set-tops, to Sky’s Anytime Plus customer base, to whom they could retail their services directly. This would allow Sky subscribers to switch to alternative SVOD service providers, allowing the latter to make more credible bids for movie rights.The requirement to publish contract expiry dates is intended as a supplement to this, enabling OTT providers to engage with studios on a timely basis for rights.The latest proposed remedies follows the competition regulator’s earlier finding that Sky’s control over pay-TV movie rights in the UK is restricting competition between pay TV prices and reduced choice and innovation for subscribers. Initial remedies proposed including restricting the number of studios from which Sky could license exclusive first-run rights, restricting the nature of the rights to give access to rival SVOD services and a requirement that Sky should acquire rival services’ content on a wholesale basis. These remedies met with criticism from studios as “disproportionate” as well as from Sky itself.The latest proposed remedies are open for consultation until December 5.last_img read more
